Tokyo City University’s Science Café Features Hands-on Nuclear Exhibition of Robots

On November 3 and 4, a “Science Cafe” was staged at the Setagaya Campus of Tokyo City University, at which representatives of nuclear-related companies and organizations in Japan exhibited robots, explained them via panels, and conversed with visitors. The “Science Cafe” has been held annually in coordination with the university’s campus festival.

This year, ATOX, the Nuclear Waste Management Organization of Japan (NUMO), Chiyoda Technol Corporation, the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) and GE-Hitachi Nuclear Power (GEH) all took part in the event. GEH demonstrated its technological capabilities with hands-on exhibitions of PMORPH—a remotely-controlled, shape-changing robot used to investigate the insides of RCVs at the Fukushima Daiichi NPPs—and a virtual reality (VR) simulator of the central control room at a nuclear power plants. Meanwhile, Chiyoda Technol demonstrated the measuring of natural radiation in food samples using various radiation detectors. Also, JAEA introduced the latest R&D on fast reactors and high-temperature gas-cooled reactors (HTGCRs). In addition, NUMO displayed a so-called Map of Scientific Fe...more
