This paper is a brief summary of the design and manufacture of an electric robot, whose purpose is to inspect transmission lines, aiming to find defects, such as broken conductors, broken space dampers etc. This project was developed by a group of electrician, mechanical, electronics and automation engineers from the following areas in FURNAS: the technical center for tests and measurements, the division of transmission lines and the regional department of Parana. Thus the group was very heterogeneous, combining engineering staff and people who actually face the difficulties in inspecting transmission lines.
