Big science accelerators such as CERN and the European Spallation Source are becoming increasingly nuclear as beam energies increase. Nuclear fission presents challenges for both decommissioning and the quest for next generation devices.
The challenges of exploring space are many including radiation and an inability to intervene.
Back on Earth, there are inspection and maintenance tasks in hazardous environments, including petrochemical facilities on land, at sea and on the seabed. Robotics offers countless opportunities to increase safety and productivity.
