Robotics and Remote Handling in Nuclear Decommissioning is an essential guide to the various robotic and remote system tools available to complete decommissioning tasks that cannot be completed by human workers hands-on due to ALARA constraints. The book provides readers with a guide to what has worked in the past for given types of decommissioning tasks based on broad community experience. It also examines leading-edge developments in research which are expected to be highly useful to those developing new technologies. Chapters in the first section of the book set the scene by introducing the topic and reviewing its history. Part 2 then focuses on available technologies, from long handle tooling to remote cranes, mobile platforms and telerobotics. A series of case studies then address lessons learned in real world nuclear decommissioning operations. The final chapters review the regulatory environment and its implications. The book will be a valuable reference for engineers and managers in the nuclear industry, technology developers, researchers and graduate students with an interest in applied robotics and nuclear decommissioning. Uses case studies to illustrate key lessons learned from past clean-ups Provides examples that identify the limits of what can be done with current technology and within current regulatory frameworks around the world Discusses technology needs for further development then goes on to identify current research in robotics that others may leverage to their advantage

Towards Advanced Robotic Manipulations for Nuclear Decommissioning

Despite enormous remote handling requirements, remarkably very few robots are being used by the nuclear industry. Most of the remote handling tasks are still performed manually, using conventional mechanical master-slave devices. The few robotic manipulators deployed are directly tele-operated in rudimentary ways, with almost no autonomy or even a pre-programmed

Nuclear Decommissioning

Once a nuclear installation has reached the end of its safe and economical operational lifetime, the need for its decommissioning arises. Different strategies can be employed for nuclear decommissioning, based on the evaluation of particular hazards and their attendant risks, as well as on the analysis of costs of clean-up

Disarmament and Decommissioning in the Nuclear Domain

Following the acquisition of the atomic bomb by five states, the United Nations began drafting several treaties to limit nuclear proliferation. These efforts failed, as four more states also acquired nuclear weapons. In a similar vein, an attempt to limit atomic weapons - primarily within the two superpowers - was

Nuclear Decommissioning  Waste Management  and Environmental Site Remediation

Decommissioning nuclear facilities is a relatively new field, which has developed rapidly in the last ten years. It involves materials that may be highly radioactive and therefore require sophisticated methods of containment and remote handling. The wastes arising from decommissioning are hazardous and have to be stored or disposed of

Visual Servoing in Robotics

Visual servoing is a well-known approach to guide robots using visual information. Image processing, robotics, and control theory are combined in order to control the motion of a robot depending on the visual information extracted from the images captured by one or several cameras. With respect to vision issues, a
