One of RE2's HDMS dual-arm robotic manipulator systems has been delivered to ATOX in Japan, where it is being used for disaster cleanup at the Fukushima Dai-Ichi Nuclear Power Station of the Tokyo Electric Power Company. While stationed behind a thick protective wall, operators are using RE2’s Imitative Controller to safely and remotely capture, collect, clean, and decontaminate highly radiated sludge from a 2011 nuclear accident at the plant.
