An autonomous robot named Chengcheng starts patrols at the Jianmen Pass substation for the Xi'an-Chengdu railway line on February 8, 2018. The 1.1-meter tall robot, pictured here while on duty this Thursday, is equipped with high tech navigation, imaging, and heat sensors that allow it spot potential problems and raise an alert with its human handlers. By monitoring the functioning of the power supply system, the robot is helping to ensure the safe and reliable operation of high speed trains on the Xi'an-Chengdu line. [Photo: IC]
