UK Nuclear Site Sellafield To Decommission Nuclear Material Via VR Controlled Robots. The virtual reality controlled robots will help to decommission used nuclear material. Cumbria-based company Createc is leading a £1.5 million software development project which will see robots used to enter unfamiliar nuclear sites and dismantle dangerous radioactive equipment. This will be assisted by the use of VR to give a human operator more visibility and precise control over the robot. Historically, large, purpose-built robots have been used to handle the decommissioning work, but Createc believes there is a cheaper and more reusable solution.
