At present, the traditional testing of wind farms is manual testing. But the safety and economy of manual detection are limited. Some companies use the UAV to detect fan blades failure. However, unmanned aerial vehicles equipped with infrared devices in the long-range detection is easily affected by the environment, the size of the type of injury is not easy to accurately determine the size. Therefore, based on the detection of various problems in the process of blades, we propose a robot to detect fan blades. The blade detection robot can generate pressure on the surface of the fan blade by centrifugal fan. This provides the necessary friction for the machine to crawl along the surface of the fan. The machine takes pictures of the fan blades by means of the high definition camera. In addition, the robot installed an infrared sensor to detect the surface of the fan blade. Data collected by robots and HD images are continuously analyzed. The use of big data and Internet plus concept, testing personnel will detect the information of the robot from discrimination, greatly improve the safety and reliability of wind turbine blade detection, also improves the detection efficiency.
