The first RAIN user group meetings took place in early June 2018. The RAIN Hub strives to solve industry lead challenges, moving technologies into Technology Readiness Levels 6/7. To do this, it is essential we engage with a variety of end users, regulatory bodies and the supply chain. These first two events focused on Remote Inspection and Remote Handling and had over 50 attendees from a mixture of partners. A mixed set of delegates enabled great discussions with a wide range of perspectives. There will be another workshop discussing the nuclear safety case in September.
The AVEXIS® is a small submersible tethered Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV). It has been designed to fit through a 6 inch port, move through water, and characterise the space it is in. This essential information is difficult to assess within high risk environments such as nuclear storage facilities, or the hazardous environment at Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant.
Funded by EPSRC, this is one of four hubs awarded following their call for large projects relating to “Robotics and Artificial Intelligence Hubs in Extreme and Challenging (Hazardous) Environments” in May 2017.
