Can these models function amid extremely high radiation? My recollection of the Chernobyl disaster was that they had 2 robots, but that the radiation fried the electronics, whereupon they were forced to send in what they described as "human robots" to finish the job. I read somewhere that the most vulnerable electronics are the cameras but I imagine the radio communications might be damaged or the signals simply overwhelmed by background noise.

This reminds of the robotic fire fighting system I saw at Tokyo's Convention Centre: http://www.flickr.com/photos/simplesimon/4549761066/in/photostream/lightbox/#/photos/simplesimon/2058934064/in/photostream/lightbox/
