IEEE said on Friday that iRobot is sending four of its robots to aid the workers at the Fukushima Daiichi power plants.
The robots being sent include the Packbot 510 and the Warrior 710. Both bots have wireless video, remote control and sensors/detectors. The Warrior 710 can navigate rubble, climb stairs, and even deploy the smaller Packbot.
This will give the brave workers another tool to look at what is going on inside the power plants.
