Infosys helped the overhead conductor manufacturer who needed an innovative way to apply specialized coating to installed overhead power conductors that would extend their life and remove the need for expensive replacement.
Leveraged AI and Automation experience to design and develop two robots that would travel along the overhead conductor, cleaning and then coating it
Controlled remotely via cellular/RF, the robots featured advanced vision and control systems to perform the process, ultimately extending the life of the cable
In-built IoT gateway to communicate with the ground stations for continuous monitoring of the battery, speed of robots, coating level in storage tank, flow volume of coating and other critical parameters remotely.
Intelligent Robotic base approach driven by AI to extend life of overhead conductors and eliminating the need for expensive replacement
Developed Intelligent robots, operated via WIFI/cellular/RF remote communications
Removed need for hazardous human intervention (wiremen)
Projected savings of US$8 billion due to reduced transmission losses
Projected savings of US$25 billion by removing need for new cables
