Challenge

Inspection robots play a crucial role in processing a vast number of images and translating diverse sets of values from electricity meters into real-time digital data for subsequent analysis or warnings. Consequently, the computing hardware dedicated to this task demands a high level of AI computing power. Moreover, the power plant's remote location poses challenges for repairing or maintaining damaged robots, adding an extra layer of complexity to the operational demands. As a result, a consistent supply and long-term support are very important. Lastly, developing different software and SDKs around  Ubuntu  and deploying them to hardware is challenging. Consequently, customers require high levels of technical support for both software and hardware integration.
