Mydesign, I think the intent here regarding nuclear power plants refers to the robots used in dealing with the most radioactive parts.  You might recall that in the Fukushima situation some robots from the US were sent in to check the affected areas so that humans would not have to.  These robots carried cameras and sensors for that task. 

Typically researchers will mention high value situations like this.  If it works, though, the real money is always in high volume.  The real payday on something like this is the cell phone market.

Really it's just another chunk of code running a task, just like the operating system, and an environment that's dangerous for humans is the ideal place to deploy the technology.

Ann, what's the need of software to dismantle the nuclear power plant. I know the importance of human robot communication, but I think the developments has to be happen in other directions like disaster management and rescue operations.
