Kawatsuma, Shinji

Accidents at Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Station, were occurred by earthquakes of North East Japan on the Pacific Ocean on March 11th, 2011. Nuclear disaster robots, developed after JCO criticality accidents occurred, could not be deployed immediately, because those robots had been discarded or had not been maintained. After that, unmanned construction machines, PackBOT robots developed in USA, BROKK robots developed in Sweden, Quince robots developed by Chiba Institute of Technology, Tohoku University and International rescue systems, have been deployed. Based on the experiences of emergency responses and restoration operations by those robots, it was lessons learned that operational organization, systemization, conformity capabilities are very important.
