The Great Eastern Japan Earthquake and Tsunami occurred in March 11, 2011, and the accident of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant occurred due to the earthquake and the tsunami. There have been lots of needs of remote-controlled machine technology including robot technology (RT) for the response of the disaster and the accident. In this presentation, it is introduced how these technology has been utilized in the emergent situation so far and will be expected as the middle-range and long-range measures towards decommission and future preparation against possible disasters and accidents.
