(Yicai Global) May 16 -- A smart substation inspection robot developed by a unit of Chinese software firm Wiscom System Co. has come through testing at the State Grid Corp. of China successfully and will become part of the utility's control system.

The use of intelligent robots can greatly improve the efficiency of grid operations and maintenance while reducing safety risks, said Nanjing-based Youkuo Electric Technology Co. in a statement.

Youkuo Electric develops, designs, manufactures and sells automation systems and green energy robots.
