A team of researchers from HH Wills Physics laboratory in Bristol U.K. together with Imitec, a company that specializes in radiation mapping, have converted their Leo Rovers into radiation mapping mobile robots to go to Fukushima.

Leo Rover was customized and converted with an isotope analysis tool that allowed the team to map the radiation levels around the Fukushima grounds and look for radiation hot-spots on the ground.
