Mechatronics, Robotics & Operation (MRO)

MRO wiki (CERN only)

The MRO section is responsible for:

* Design, installation, control, operation support and maintenance of the mechatronics control systems for Beam Intercepting Devices (BIDs) in the CERN accelerator complex and experimental facilities (i.e. collimators, beam stoppers and dumps, slits, scrapers etc.)

* Development and maintenance of BIDs and monitoring devices FESA classes, monitoring tools and expert interfaces for piquet intervention

* Development and support of industrial automation solutions for mechatronics based on PLCs, standard off the shelf as well as ad hoc in-house developed actuators/sensors

* BIDs operation support and coordination of the piquet service of the group

* Organization of the electrical industrial support (FSU)

* Development of novel robotic solutions for remote robotic inspection and telemanipulation in hazardous environments including Artificial Intelligence R&D activity

* Definition of intervention procedures for remote maintenance in highly activated areas. Robotic operations for remote interventions in the entire CERN accelerator complex.
