The machine controls the operation of the tunnel and equipment.
At the Large hadron Collider appeared the robot that controls the operation of the tunnel and various equipment. This was reported on the official website of the International research centre of the European community.
The main task of the robot named TIM is patrolling a 27-kilometer tunnel of the Large hadron Collider and Troubleshooting. For example, this year at the Collider ferret bite 66-kilovolt electrical transformer, causing a power outage.
The robot moves on a monorail track on the ceiling of the tunnel, providing visual and infrared imagery of the tunnel. The machine can move with a speed of 6 km/h.
The robot can also carry small loads in trailers, to transfer images with conventional and infrared cameras, and data sensors.
Recall, the large hadron Collider confirmed the existence of pentaquarks – “devil” of the particles of the five quarks.
