R.O.V. Technologies Inc. - PWR BMH Inspection

All of R.O.V.'s Inspection Systems have been designed with time savings and radiological dose savings in mind. R.O.V. can customize inspection systems based on customer requirements. The Scarab IIIP was designed to address an industry need to remotely inspect Pressurized Water Reactor (PWR) heads for evidence of boron deposits due to weld degradation. This inspection criterion became evident due to the discovery of a failed inconel alloy 600 nozzle weld joint discovered at a U.S. operating station, and the high susceptibility to primary water stress corrosion cracking (PWSCC).

CMU's snake robot explores defunct nuclear power plant / 2045 Initiative

The main goals of the 2045 Initiative: the creation and realization of a new strategy for the development of humanity which meets global civilization challenges; the creation of optimale conditions promoting the spiritual enlightenment of humanity; and the realization of a new futuristic reality based on 5 principles: high spirituality, high culture, high ethics, high science and high technologies. The main science mega-project of the 2045 Initiative aims to create technologies enabling the transfer of a individual’s personality to a more advanced non-biological carrier, and extending life, including to the point of immortality.

We devote particular attention to enabling the fullest possible dialogue between the world’s major spiritual traditions, science and society. Espy 360 ROV – Underwater Spy Monitors Marine Environment In More Effective and Safer Way. Egyptian Students Design an Underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle - ArabCrunch… Arab Tech Arab Startups. Most of the stories that we and other who publish news about Arab tech and startups tend to focus on web startups, but what about inventions in other teach sectors namely hardware?

Magnetic Mobile Robotic Inspection System.

Versatrax 100 MicroMag™ The MicroMag™ mobile robotic inspection vehicle is compact, waterproof and magnetic.

Magnetic Mobile Robotic Inspection System

It can be rapidly deployed for many applications that exclude most ordinary ROV's. The MicroMag™ visual inspection system has been engineered to deliver vivid color video footage in real-time while travelling almost any direction on ferrous metal surfaces. This unique remotely operated device is steerable on vertical, horizontal and inverted plains even when piloted underwater. The standard MicroMag™ crawler is equipped with a flat aluminum chassis, a powerful rare earth magnet component, a pair of rugged aluminum Microtracs™ and an industrial Spectrum 45™ pan / tilt camera that boasts six high intensity LED lights. As with all Inuktun remote visual tools, MicroMag™ Operators will appreciate the portable controller, intuitive software interface and familiar joy-sticks.

Changing shape and posture to avoid obstacle in narrow spaces Tokyo, March 10, 2014 - Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE: 6501, "Hitachi") and Hitachi-GE Nuclear Energy, Ltd. ("HGNE") today announced the joint development of a submersible crawling and swimming robot (crawler) and a shape-changing robot (crawler) which freely modify shape or posture to avoid obstacles even in narrow spaces to remotely explore wide areas.

Hitachi and HGNE have developed these robots to conduct various investigations ahead of the remote equipment to be developed under the project supported by the Agency for Natural Resources and Energy, Japan, to remove the fuel at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. Details of the mobile equipment developed are as below. RISYS: An Advanced Reactor Vessel Inspection System with Underwater Mobile Robots. Abstract: An underwater mobile robotic system for ultrasonic examination of reactor vessel welds has been developed to reduce inspection time and schedule during mandatory code inspections.

Instead of a conventional inspection machine with a large structure, the underwater mobile robot with a long reach manipulator examines the whole welds of the reactor vessel. The system mainly consists of an underwater mobile robot, a laser positioning unit and a main control station. EJAM(5-1-NT54) Robot Technologies of PWR for Nuclear Power Plant Maintenance. In the maintenance work of the nuclear power plants and facilities, there are many locations where the works by field workers are difficult or impossible, due to the conditions such as small space or narrow gap, under-water, high radiation dose rate, etc. To solve these problems, many robots are applied for the maintenance work as a means to perform the works in place of the workers (Fig. 1).

MHI has developed the typical maintenance and inspection robots in order to realize the wide variety of required work contents. 1. RV Inspection Robot 2. ROV for NPP - HU.
