The relay consisted of the torchbearer passing the Olympic torch to the amphibious robot, after which the amphibious robot and the underwater robot made a precise docking and ignition to the next handful of torchbearers. The transmission process not only reflects the magical sight of flame and water merging, but also shows the green environmental protection concept advocated by the designer, highlighting the charm of the combination between the Olympics and the brilliant beauty from technology.

The two robots met in the middle of the frozen Yongding River in Beijing and performed an 8-minute underwater relay. The process, which included the robot skating into the water on the ice, the underwater torch handover and the submersible robot exiting the water, was all done by the amphibious robot together with the underwater deformed structure robot.

“The Torch Relay is an indispensable part of the Olympic Games, which not only witnesses the development of the Olympic Games, but also the continuous progress of human technology, civilization and wisdom. The event was the first time in the world that the robotic submerged torch relay was realized, igniting people’s passion for the Beijing Winter Olympics and showing the technological progress of China in robotics while delivering friendship and peace to the world.” Li Shuo, Vice Director of Shenyang Automation Institute, said.
