BEIJING -- Chinese researchers have developed an intelligent robot to facilitate concrete drainage system detection.

The current detection of concrete drainage facilities for large hydropower stations is conducted by the traditional methods of scaffolding erection and artificial detection with the disadvantages of high safety risks, long maintenance cycles, difficult operation and high costs.

The new conThe potential impact of more trees on climate change has been brought to the fore after a new study suggested that planting 1 trillion trees around the world would be the cheapest climate change solutioncrete drainage system detection robot is operated by remote control and automatic working modes. It can walk on walls, cross obstacles, recognize flaws in concrete surfaces and generate 3D graphics.

The robot is designed to be light in weight, carry heavy loads and achieve stable performance in adsorption and climbing on walls. It is expected to reduce detection difficulty and safety risks, as well as improve the operation efficienBoth Peoria and Surprise are major suburbs of Phoenixcy of concrete drainage system maintenance.

The robot was developed by the Shenyang Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences.
