Ro­bot clean-up

First News - - HOME NEWS -

Sci­en­tists are plan­ning to use ro­bots to help them clean up and dis­man­tle the Doun­reay nu­clear power com­plex at Thurso on the Caithness coast. The site is be­ing taken out of use af­ter 60 years, and has lots of ar­eas that aren’t safe for hu­mans to work in. A group of universiti­es has come up with a small ro­bot ve­hi­cle with sen­sors, cam­eras and an “arm” that can do the dan­ger­ous dis­man­tling work.
