Summary form only given. This talk will provide 3 case studies of HRI in the aftermath of the Sendai Earthquake: ground robots and aerial vehicle used with the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear emergency and the use of unmanned marine vehicles to assist with recovery operations north of Sendai. The Center for Robot-Assisted Search and Rescue, under the direction of Prof. Robin Murphy, conducted participatory research with aerial and marine unmanned systems for remote assessment and situation awareness for critical life saving and recovery operations. CRASAR assisted with the tsunami response recovery in the areas around Hachinohe, Minamisanriku, and Rikuzentakata in collaboration with the International Rescue System Institute (Japan). The joint Japan-US team used three different remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) to open a port and search for victims tangled in the floating debris or pinned down by underwater rubble. Murphy independently assisted the Honeywell T-Hawk UAV team to assess the four Fukushima Daiichi reactors. Extensive video will be shown
