Unmanned aircraft known as “Drone” is planned to be used in Fukushima nuclear plant from this Autumn.

Chiba university collaborated with about 10 Japanese makers.

It’s approximately 1m × 1m long, has self positioning system independent from GPS.

It’s expected to fly inside the plant buildings avoiding obstacles.

However electronic parts are known to be severely damaged by high level of radiation.

Fukushima worker, Happy11311 posted on Twitter that the problem is how much it can resist the radioactive circumstances inside the plant buildings.

At this moment, Tepco announced none of the details.
