Kawatsuma, Shinji

Fukushima NPP accident was occurred according to the earthquake of East Japan on the Pacific Ocean, on March 11th, 2011. Nuclear Disaster Robots, developed after JCO criticality accident, had been discarded, or stored but not maintained, so that those robots could not been deployed immediately. After that, Unmanned heavy construction machines, PackBOTs, BROKKs, Quince and other robots have been deployed. Development of the remote equipments for decommissioning of the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plants and preparation of maintenance and employment of the remote equipments in case of nuclear urgent are advanced. This paper summarized robots' emergency response to Fukushima NPP accident and future subjects, in order for the development and preparation mentioned above.
