The newly-developed robocar is capable of running in all directions and fulfilling replacement tasks automatically even on a 56-degree steep slope, according to the Institute of Automation under the Chinese Academy of Sciences, which designed the robot.

The system has already been used by FAST's maintenance services, and it has significantly improved the efficiency and reduced safety risks.

Located in a naturally deep and round karst depression in Pingtang county in Guizhou province, Southwest China, FAST started formal operation in January 2020 and officially opened to the world on March 31, 2021.
