How drones can help nuclear power plants reach ALARA goals

Nuclear power plants are places which are inherently dangerous to work on; there are often situations where human beings are called to enter high radiation areas to ensure the safety of the plant. With the rise of industrial robotics, it is now possible to sometimes save people from these dangerous exposures. These robots can help NPPs reach their ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Possible) goals.
