Robotics for Extreme Environments Lab
The Robotics for Extreme Environments Laboratory (REEL) in Cleator Moor, Cumbria, was set up to enable close collaboration with Sellafield and the nuclear supply chain in west Cumbria. REEL provides mock-ups and robotic equipment including mobile robots, Vicon-positioning system, radiation detectors, which enable the development and testing of robotics equipment for our nuclear related research programmes. Facilities include a simulated nuclear fuel pond, a reconfigurable space allowing localisation and motion planning to be investigated as well as office space.
