This paper presents a review of state-of-the-art robotics systems developed or in use on overhead/underground power distribution lines in the past decade. It covers only those robotic applications that are designed for use on the distribution network, that is, any part of the power system located between the transmission lines/substations (transmission network) and the end users. The first part of the paper discusses robots for overhead distribution lines, while the second section focuses on underground lines. The author concludes with a discussion on robotics related to distribution lines in general.
