As part of extensive testing, the management of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant decided to hire a four-legged robot to inspect the facility and its surroundings. For several years now, a new sarcophagus has been towering over the famous reactor No. 4, which is to protect the world against radiation emission for about 100 years.
Despite resolving fears of the collapse of the old sarcophagus and the vision of another disaster, scientists working in Chernobyl want to have as much knowledge as possible about the entire area and points with the highest levels of radiation. It is about ensuring the safety of both employees and tourists who are more and more willing to come to these regions of Ukraine.
The Robo-Dog Spot will celebrate the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, map its area in 3D and record points with increased radiation emission. Based on this valuable data, scientists will create a comprehensive map that will allow them to later modify the facility and ensure even greater security for everyone.
The facility authorities plan to map not only the power plant itself. If the project lives up to the hopes placed on it, an entire army of robots will appear in Chernobyl and start mapping the entire area of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone on an ongoing basis. Recently, scientists have used drones to detect high-radiation points, but robots can do the job much more accurately.
