Caption: Nuclear dismantling robot arm. Female operator uses a virtual reality image whilst operating a robotic arm used to dismantle nuclear facilities. The operator moves the robot arm by manipulating an arm-like controller. The actual arm is shown on a television monitor at top left. The arm's actions are simulated by specially-developed 3- dimensional computer programs and are displayed on a screen at bottom left; the arm is white and obstacles are brown and purple. The program also assists the operator by computing the the best trajectory for the arm to avoid obstacles. The detection of objects around the arm is done using a camera and an ultrasound camera.
