The present invention discloses a live-working robot, comprising: a telescopic arm and a working hopper, wherein the working hopper and the telescopic arm are slidably connected along a vertical direction and the telescopic arm is provided with the drive component for driving the working hopper to reciprocate along a vertical direction. The live-working robot provided in the present invention achieves a movement of the working hopper along the vertical direction by slidably connecting the working hopper and the telescopic arm along the vertical direction and providing the telescopic arm with the drive component for driving the working hopper to reciprocate along the vertical direction. Since the working hopper is directly and slidably connected with the telescopic arm, there is no need to set a fly jib, which, as compared to the prior art, effectively improves the rigidity and stability of the working arm; which also effectively reduces the length of the working arm, thus reducing the size of the entire live-working robot and reducing the occupied space; and which can meanwhile increase strokes of the working hopper in the vertical direction and thus improve service performance.

Provided in the present invention is a power-line carrier communication method, comprising a preamble sequence-based low-speed robust communication method. The robust communication method provides an auxiliary communication mode when effective communication cannot be provided by a conventional communication mode in a harsh channel environment. Based on a preamble signal and a processing method therefor, the method allows timing and synchronization in a packet-switched data network. When normal communication cannot be carried out under the conventional communication mode, communication via the robust communication mode is attempted. The robust communication mode provided in the present invention is capable of providing low-speed and reliable communication when the conventional communication mode cannot work reliably, thus satisfying basic communication requirements of a network, and reducing network failure rate.
