iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2018

In view of low temperatures in the winter, heavy snow gets frozen to a pole, and the tower cannot withstand the weight and collapses. We designed a high-altitude electric wire snow removal UAV to clear the ice, so that the problem of injury caused by climbing high voltage wire during deicing is solved, which reduces the labor intensiveness and risk for electric workers.

A promising solution during winter.
