China’s DEEP Robotics Launches Rescue Robot Dog System

DEEPJueying X20 400x275

July 26, 2022

China-based DEEP Robotics, which is developing quadruped robots, has announced the release of the Jueying X20 hazard detection and rescue robot dog. The Jueying X20 is designed for detection and rescue services on the complex terrain of a post-earthquake landscape, the insides of vulnerable debris buildings, tunnel traffic accidents, as well as in toxic, hypoxia, and high-density smoke environments created by chemical pollution or a natural disaster event.

DEEP Robotics said the Jueying X20 can go deep into post-disaster outdoor and indoor high-risk areas where it can traverse over ruins, piles of rubble, stairwells, and other unstructured pathways. The robot can also step over 20 cm-high obstacles and stairs, and climb on a 35-degree slope. With its ability to move freely in all directions and maneuver within a small contact area, the robot dog can reduce the occurrence of secondary accidents.

Additional features of the robot include:

  • IP66 industrial-grade protection that ensures the robot can complete detection tasks in extreme weather conditions, including heavy downpours, sand and dust storms, frigid temperatures, and hail.
  • A maximum payload of 85 kg lets the robot carry oxygen bottles and other rescue supplies to disaster sites, facilitating provision of assistance to stranded victims and rescuers.
  • A long-distance communication system
  • Bi-spectrum pan, tilt and zoom (PTZ) camera
  • Gas sensing equipment and heat source tracking
  • Omnidirectional camera
  • An optional rotating laser scanner that can obtain high-precision point cloud data from indoor and outdoor disaster and accident sites, giving information for post-disaster data analysis.

DEEP Robotics said its self-developed Jueying series of robots can be deployed across several scenarios, including inspection of high-voltage power plants, surveying of dangerous terrains and hazard detection, beyond rescue efforts.
