2014 NI Engineering Impact Awards Finalist: Controlling a Robotic Manipulator for Nuclear Decommissioning

2014 Machine Control Finalist

Controlling a Robotic Manipulator for Nuclear Decommissioning

Author: Dr. Carwyn Jones, James Fisher Nuclear Ltd Justin Gallagher and Dr. David Keeling, Key Engineering Solutions Limited

Challenge: Developing a cost-effective modular robotic manipulator for use with a range of remote handling tasks in nuclear decommissioning applications, which represent some of the most hazardous environments on the planet.

Solution: Using NI CompactRIO hardware, NI LabVIEW system design software, and the LabVIEW Robotics Module to develop a cost-effective, safe, and reliable system that provides accurate remote control of a heavy-duty manipulator in an environment that is otherwise inaccessible to humans.
