Inspection of overhead distribution power lines involves high risk of accidents leading to time consumption and costly operation. Therefore a lightweight, portable and flexible smart manipulator made of insulated material is proposed. Using this system the operator can perform inspection from control room, thereby increasing efficiency and safety. The robot continuously inspects the power line for fault and takes photos of any obstacles which cause power failures. It detects the exact position of fault and sent photographs along with the message to electrical department by means of IoT. The beneficiaries of the system are electrical and police department and the consumers of energy who can access the data through a PC or a mobile phone. It also gives a provision for complaint booking and provides night security.
