Drones are flying UNDERGROUND in Japan to inspect parts of the Tokyo Metro's sprawling subway tunnels that are difficult for people to see


 


The remote-controlled 2.5 pound (1.15kg) drone is encased in a plastic sphere 

This 8.5-inch wide casing protects the machine from any potential damage 

Fitted with cameras it searches for signs of damage on inspections  

Tokyo Metro hopes to soon use the drone throughout its 121 mile-long labyrinth below the Japanese capital city

도쿄 지하철 유지관리 드론 로봇


   도쿄 지하철 유지관리 보수 작업자들은 원격조종 8.5인치 폭 드론의 도움을 받고 있다.


리모컨으로 조종되는 2.5파운드(1.15kg) 드론은 미로를 탐사하는 동안 플라스틱 구 안에 넣어져 있어 어떤 충격으로부터도 보호받게 되어 있다.




드론에 탑재된 카메라는 작업자들이 터널 부위들을 열심히 스캔하여 손상 징후를 확인할 수 있게 한다.

현재는 손상의 징후를 보기 위해 작업자들이 직접 차량과 플랫폼을 사용하고 있다.


도쿄 지하철은 전국의 85%에 달하는 지하철 네트워크를 운영하고 있으며, 드론을 이용해 터널의 상층부를 조사하고 있다.


드론은 작고 제어하기 쉬우며, 플랫폼과 비계를 설치하는 데 더 이상의 시간과 비용 소모를 줄일 수 있다.

그들은 또한 작업자가 취약부의 손상 징후를 찾기 위해 벽에 더 근접할 수 있다고 일본 뉴스는 보도했다.

The remote-controlled 2.5 pound (1.15kg) drone is encased in a plastic sphere to protect it from any unfortunate bumps and knocks while navigating the labyrinth. 




Cameras on the custom-built drone will allow operators to scan hard to reach parts of the tunnel network for signs of damage. 


Current methods involve humans using a torch and looking up to see signs of damage and then having to use vehicles and platforms to reach them.

Tokyo Metro runs 85 per cent of the sprawling subway network of the nation's capital city and is using the drones to inspect upper regions of the tunnels.


The drones are small and easy to control and their inspections do not require the time-consuming and expensive erection of platforms and scaffolding.


They can also get closer to the walls to search for signs of deterioration that a human being can, Japan News reports.
