My Country’s Self-Developed Infrared Thermal Imaging Smart Grid Robot Is on Duty, Which Is Praised by CCTV
On September 17, CCTV's "News Room" column broadcasted "Smart Grid Robots on Duty, Independently Perform Live Work", live broadcast the work site of the State Grid Corporation's artificial intelligence distribution network live work robot, and reported that the State Grid Corporation of Major national projects provide reliable power guarantee and serve the coordinated development of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei.
At present, the construction of the Tianjin National Convention and Exhibition Center is stepping up. The first phase of the plant has been basically completed, and the second phase has also begun construction on the ground. The Tianjin National Convention and Exhibition Center has a construction area of approximately 1.34 million square meters. There are more than 10,000 workers and more than 800 large-scale machinery and equipment for construction every day. The daily electricity consumption is nearly 1.2 million kWh, which is equivalent to the daily electricity consumption of 120,000 households. the amount.
If there is a power outage for one hour, it will cause a direct loss of 200,000 yuan to the project and an indirect loss of up to one million yuan. In order to eliminate hidden dangers in power supply lines, State Grid Tianjin Electric Power is carrying out live work and conducting comprehensive overhauls on the lines. Different from the past, this live operation is carried out by a new generation of infrared thermal imaging intelligent distribution network live operation robot independently developed by my country. This is also the first application of the robot after its official post.

The first step in the live operation of the infrared thermal imaging smart grid robot is the precise positioning of the line, which is equivalent to the on-site survey of traditional operations. Robots rely on sensing devices such as lidar, binocular recognition, infrared thermal imaging, and cloud cameras to automatically perceive the surrounding environment, and then send the information to the terminal device for 3D modeling, and guide the robot and robotic arm to work. At the same time, it also has the ability to learn independently. Each job will send the working environment information to the cloud platform to form a database, and expand the working ability under different working environments through autonomous learning.

In the previous manual operation, the operator had to wear heavy insulating clothing, three layers of insulating gloves, and insulation and shielding on the live body, which was time-consuming and labor-intensive and unsafe. Now using the robot to identify the fixed wire, under the guidance of the photoelectric sensor, rely on the rotating wire stripper in the middle to strip the wire. The error is only 0.1 mm, which is equivalent to the thickness of a human hair, and there is no damage to the wire.
The live operation of the robot has the characteristics of not afraid of wind, heat, cold, dark, and humidity, etc., which can realize live operation under various conditions and greatly increase the working time. Its mechanical arm is equivalent to a human arm and can complete tasks such as tool delivery. The connected black box is the robot’s toolbox, which is equivalent to wrenches and screwdrivers used by humans during operation. The robot’s tools are specially made. It is also the focus of the entire robot research and development.
After continuous breakthroughs by the front-line R&D team, the robot now has a variety of tools such as wire cutting and stripping tools, installation tools, and wire connection tools, which basically cover all the functions of live operation. It has a number of core patents and a number of advanced technologies. . This infrared thermal imaging smart grid robot is the fourth-generation robot successfully developed in my country. It is fully capable of autonomous learning and autonomous operation. It has been mass-produced in the Tianjin Artificial Intelligence Distribution Network Live Robot Industrialization Base. The annual output is about 200 units.
In the next step, these robots will be further promoted in Beijing, Tianjin, Chongqing, Shandong and other places. In the future, as more and more live working robots are on duty, there will be more and more live working, the time of power outage will be less and less, and the urban power grid will be safer and more reliable.
SUANGSI INFRARED designs, develops, manufactures, markets, and distributes thermal cameras and solutions to meet the needs of a broad range of markets.
The reliable service includes the sale of thermal cameras up to delivering turn-key industrial solutions for Electricity, Waste disposal, Health Quarantine, Storage, Metallurgy, Chemical Engineering and Fire & Rescue applications.
