Toshiba quadruped walking robot for nuclear disaster relief operations.

Who can forget the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant disaster that was prompted due to the Tsunami initiated by the Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11th. Now to carry the investigation of the affected area it is obvious that human involvement would not be safe, for this very reason Toshiba has developed a quadruped robot that is capable of walking at the speed of 1km per hour and carrying put all the research needed. The robot runs on wireless radio operation has a camera and dosimeter for searching the uneven terrain. Weighing 65 kg and being battery operated, providing it a continuous 2 hours of walking makes it a perfect assistant for all the dirty work that is too dangerous for humans to embark on. The robot also has a small vehicle self-actuated robot on top of it for hard to reach places.
