Nuclear energy has become the main energy source in Korea, but the safety issues are being debated since the Fukusima accident. In order to guarantee the safety and reliability of nuclear power plants, the uncertainty of human errors are being minimized by utilizing innovative technologies for inspection and maintenance. KAERI has developed robotic systems to upgrade and ensure the safety of nuclear facilities, to detect unusual conditions of facilities through remote inspection and to prevent human workers from high dose radiation with efficient plant maintenance.
