“iRobot’s unmanned ground vehicles have proven their worth as rugged
tools that can be used in a wide range of missions,” said
Warrior and PackBot also continue to play a vital role at Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. After last year’s earthquake and tsunami, iRobot sent two Warrior and two PackBot robots to the country and provided operator training. Since then, the robots have been used on a regular basis to remove debris and measure radiation levels at the plant.
iRobot designs and builds robots that make a difference. The company’s home robots help people find smarter ways to clean, and its government and industrial robots protect those in harm’s way. iRobot’s consumer and military robots feature iRobot Aware® robot intelligence systems, proprietary technology incorporating advanced concepts in navigation, mobility, manipulation and artificial intelligence.
