Infrastructure inspection and disaster response robot facilities

 

This is the only test site in Japan for the demonstration test on infrastructure inspection and disaster response by robot. It is possible to reproduce almost conceivable disaster environment and aging condition in structures such as tunnels, bridges, plants, urban areas and roads. In August 20 to 22, 2020, “World Robot Summit”, the international robot competition will be held.

1Mockup bridge


It can be used for testing and operation training related to the condition check and inspection.
It reproduces the objects to be inspected such as cracking/peeling/flaking on concrete and looseness/cracking on steel bolts.
Also, objects of hindering on inspection, illumination posts, protective fences that may hinder inspection, trusses, or cable tubes can be installed.

2Mockup tunnel


maneuvering on situation confirmation, search, debris removal, aging inspections. On its wall, it is equipped with lighting equipment on expressways and ordinary roads (LED light, sodium lamp) and jet fans to reproduce cracking/peeling to be inspected. Inside the tunnel, obstacles such as vehicle, rubble, rock, or gravel can be placed, and the shutters on both sides can be closed to reproduce the central part of a long tunnel.

3Mockup plant


This facility reproduces plants at normal/disaster situation to perform tests and maneuvering training on inspections, information gathering and equipment operation. This facility has been installed plumbs, valves, ducts, stairs, spiral stairs, catwalks, vertical ladders, tanks and chimneys in various shapes. Abnormal environments can be reproduced, by changing/blinking instruments and indicators, filling smoke or gas, and arranging heat sources and debris.

4Urban field


In this field, houses, buildings and intersections with traffic light/road sign are arranged to reproduce the condition of city area. Vehicles, debris, and objects to be inspected are placed inside/outside the buildings to perform information gathering, investigation, obstacle removal, search and rescue of personnel, and inspection testing and maneuvering training. It can also be used for running tests using concrete and wood debris, bleaching training on building walls and floors, and automatic driving tests using road parts
