Intelligent robotic systems are becoming essential for inspection and measurements in harsh environments, such as the European Organization for Nuclear Research accelerators complex. Aiming at increasing safety and machine availability, robots can help to perform repetitive or dangerous tasks, reducing the risk of personnel exposure to radiation and the time for interventions. In this work, a preliminary study of novel robotic systems for inspections, maintenance and early intervention for the FCC is presented. The proposed systems will be able to perform autonomous tasks such radiation measurements, in-situ tele-operations, quick intervention in case of fire and will escort personnel to the closest exits in case of human dangers.
