[Nuclear robot] Drives at 0.2km/h, runs for 1 hour on battery

Toshiba developed two of the nuclear robot for Fukushima and released the specification.

However, it doesn’t look adequate to decommission 4 reactors.


1. Small vehicle

Battery : 1 hour
Speed : 0.2km/h
Status : Run with a wire
(Going for 100m, coming back, then the battery needs to be recharged.)

2. Four legs robot

Battery : 2 hours
Speed : 1km/h
Load capacity : 20kg
Status : Wireless

[Robots nucléaires] Roule à 0,2 km/h, autonomie 1 heure sur batteries

Toshiba a développé deux des robots nucléaires pour Fukushima et publié leurs spécifications.
Toutefois, ils ne semblent pas très adaptés au démantèlement de 4 réacteurs.

1. Petit véhicule

Autonomie : 1 heure
Vitesse : 0,2 km/h
État : fonctionne avec un câble
(Avance sur 100 m, revient, ensuite les batteries doivent être rechargées.)

Capacité de charge : 20 kg
État : Sans fil

[Robot Nucleare] Si muove a 0.2 Km/h, autonomia a batteria di 1 ora

La Toshiba ha sviluppato due robot nucleari per Fukushima e rilasciato le specifiche.
Ad ogni modo, non sembra adeguato per smantellare 4 reattori.

1 Veicolo piccolo
Batteria: 1 ora
Velocità: 0.2 km/h
Stato: Funziona a corrente
(Avanza per 100m, ritorna indietro, dopodiché le batterie vanno ricaricate)

2. Robot a 4 gambe
Batteria: 2 ore
Velocità: 1km/h
Capacità di carico: 20kg
Stato: Wireless

    It’s a Toshiba joke.

  2. NYC-Steve says:

    Joke or no joke, Japan’s fascination with robots is only false hope for this terrible situation. Robotics on large scale are only viable in manga and cinema. As in this Toshiba unit, robots can only at best photograph the situation, but can not fix it. It will take, unfortunately, human hands (and their hand controlled machines) to remove debris and fix the mechanics in these plants. TEPCO should have been nationalized on 3/12.. and put under military control.. away from politics and shareholders… and employees enlisted into the military forces…as this is a national problem equivalent to a war, not a corporate problem… very drastic situation requires drastic action. IMHO.

    They may need to be amphibian too, regarding the pool of water-coolant that there’s down there round each molten fuel, underground.
    Disregarding, the company doesn’t have money for affording one million of those robots (which would be needed for decommissioning.
