Mitsubishi Heavy unveiled its new remote control robot designed for jobs inside the building of the Fukushima Nuclear Power plant. It can carry out complicated jobs in a pace that does not allow an access like disaster site. It can cut obstacles and collect samples with its two arms.
It weighs 440 kg, and it can ascend and descend a 40-degree slope and walk even in a narrow space. Using the device installed on the top of the arms, it can drill a concrete wall and collect samples. Each of the arms can carry an object up to 15 kg. It can work for two hours by battery should it be operated wirelessly.
