Agile Robots (思灵机器人), a Beijing- and Munich-based cobot startup, said it will unveil new products on August 26, marking another step for the company to enrich its product line.
The new releases, including five members of the Diana 3 and Thor series, will meet the public both offline and via online live streaming.
The launch event will take place at the E2 exhibition hall of China International Exhibition Center in Beijing.
It is expected to bring together industry experts and global clients to share their insights into the company’s latest developments in cutting-edge robotic technologies, according to a press release from the company.
The products of Agile Robots are partially named after Greek and Nordic mythological gods like Zeus and Thor.
The company specializes in rolling out mobile robot capable of conducting self-initiated inspection at power plants and smart grids.
Combining force feedback, force control, machine vision and motion planning, among other core technologies, Agile Robots’s Zeus 3 robot can perform autonomous patrol of a high-voltage power switch room.
As a result, it reduces the number of manned inspections by 95% and the extent of human operation by more than 80%.
Amid a shift toward digitalization over the past few years, domestic power suppliers have increasingly turned to robotics to automate dreary and monotonous procedures like inspection.
Agile Robots is likely to face lots of competition in this area, up against rivals like SGAI (国网智能), Guozi Robot (国自机器人), Youibot (优艾智合) and more.
Agile Robots has partnered with smart power plants and electricty grid operators to help improve the efficiency of their maintenance and inspection work.
Aside from autonomous inspection, the company’s robots are also widely applied in healthcare and auto spray painting.
