WireMonkey is an autonomous robot that serves the purpose of continuously inspecting the power quality parameters like voltage, phase sync and splice resistance of overhead power transmission lines, thus provide valuable data to power companies for the scheduled pre-emptive maintenance of the lines, for avoiding failures and reducing costs. It does this by continuously "monkey-walking" on the line, and by taking measurements with each step. This unique way of locomotion provides WireMonkey with the ability to easily step over the obstacles in its path.
