Decommissioning technologies from Fenswood to Fukushima
The Bristol Fenswood facility is one of four partners in the National Nuclear User Facility for Hot Robotics (NNUF-HR). NNUF-HR is home to a wide variety of equipment, including robotic manipulators, drones, ground vehicles and sensors which are available for hire to both academia and industry. This demo will showcase technology available at NNUF-HR Bristol, being used in a radioactive dispersal event scenario. It will consist of a large, tracked SuperDroid robot combined with a KUKA LBR iiwa robotic manipulator and an attached sensor package. The system will be used to identify hazardous materials in its environment.
