Kaicheng Electronic to Manufacture Coal Mine Rescue Robots

Kaicheng Electronic, a North China-based factory, has obtained permit from the officials to instigate industrial production of rescue robots, which can be effectively deployed in dangerous areas, to gather information during mining mishaps.

The robot has an explosion-proof shield as well as fettered wheels. It was reported that the factory will generate 1,800 units per annum when it is fully functional by 2012.

In China, around 2,600 miners were reported dead in mining mishaps in 2009. Several research organizations and companies have instigated the development of rescue robots in mining areas, though only few have commenced manufacturing these robots.
