Wire deicing drone / UAV

Wire deicing drone

The wire deicing drone is a device that is used to deice and upkeep wire when the wire is damaged and frozen in heavy snow. It mainly uses ways like the sound wave vibration to crush the ice and snow. By checking the frozen wires through a monitoring panel, it can work out intelligent analysis and leverage manual remote control. The continually stacking snow on frozen wires makes wires very heavy, adding to great changes of damage. Thus artificial deicing of wires is particularly dangerous and difficult.
