Symposium on Robotic Solutions Toward Nuclear Decommission
URL: http://www.rm.is.tohoku.ac.jp/~tadokoro/120518Fukushima/


The work toward decommissioning of Fukushima-Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant
Unit 1-4 is in progress. Various robot technologies are essential for its
success. Public offerings of applicable technologies as a technical
catalogue were open by Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan in
March, and the second offering was closed on April 6. On the basis of their
results, this workshop introduces the roadmap of technical development
toward the decommissioning, the necessary robotic tasks, and various robot
technologies applied to these offerings. At the panel, the technologies
necessary for the future work will be discussed.

This symposium will introduce various applications of robotics during this
one year, and will make discussion for the future.
