On 4/13/2015, Tepco announced the dead robot had reported it measured approx. 10 Sv/h in Reactor 1 before it went out of order.

The robot was investigating the ground floor of PCV (Primary Containment Vessel) in Reactor 1.

The report shows the atmospheric dose was 7 〜 10 Sv/h. Temperature was around 20℃.

The video of 2:39 length shows steam coming up from the basement floor of PCV, where Tepco assumes molten fuel is retained, and grating was covered with something like yellow glue. The screen is full of white spots due to the extremely high level of radiation.

Tepco announced they gave up collecting the robot. They will cut off the cable and will not send the second robot until they figure out the reason why the robot went out of order.
