Beijing-based Internet data center maintenance robot developer Chaowei Shiji Technology (DCM360) recently announced completion of RMB 8-digit pre-Series A funding from Beijing-based Guyin Fund.
DCM360's core product combines an online IT operations and maintenance management system with offline maintenance robots.

This information is used by its operations and maintenance management system to generate a warnings database. In addition, DCM360's robots use SLAM and the company's own map-drawing algorithms to create room maps for seamless navigation and inspection.
DCM360's maintenance robots are priced between RMB 350,000 and RMB 750,000 and it has already shipped 10 units.
