Intelligent robotic systems are becoming essential for harsh environments in general, such as the CERN particles accelerator complex. In order to increase safety and machine availability, robots can perform repetitive, unplanned, and dangerous tasks, which humans either prefer to avoid or are unable to carry out due to hazards, size constraints, or the extreme environments in which they take place. In this presentation, the current status of the robotic activities for particle accelerators remote maintenance, performed by the CEM group at CERN, is presented. Several robotics solutions have been applied in the past years, as well as custom-made robotic devices. Current and future research and development in robotics are described, as well as the results from the commissioning of various novel robotic controls.
