CERN´s unique knowhow in designing, building, operating robotics systems for interventions in harsh environments.

CERN´s Know-How:

  • Design and building of robotic solutions for specialised highly complex operations in harsh environments
  • Independent platforms employing reusable software components, from autonomous robotic vehicles to operator trained robots
  • Augmented reality tools and man-machine training for efficient multi purpose interventions

Fact & Figures: 

  • 7 different robotics platforms used at CERN
  • >112 mSv: radiation dose saved to personnel till end of 2018
  • 135 robotic interventions since 2015
  • 6 km/h: max speed of TIM (Train Inspection Monorail) in the LHC tunnel

Value Proposition:
