According to Areva’s announcement, the robot called RIANA (Robot for Investigations and Assessments of Nuclear Areas) is capable of operating in radioactive areas to map, taking samples and measuring radioactivity. On the motorized platform, measurement or sampling modules can be interchanged dependent on the situation.
