Abstract

On March 11, 2011, a massive earthquake and tsunami hit eastern Japan, particularly the Tohoku area. Since then, the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station has been facing a crisis. To respond to this situation, we began a project to redesign our mobile robots for disaster response missions. A key issue to be addressed was to check the radiation hardness of the electric components of our robot. Initially, no information was available in this regard. Therefore, we conducted gamma-ray irradiation tests for the electric components using cobalt-60. In this paper, we introduce the procedure for the irradiation test and report the results of the test.
