The Interactive Robotics Laboratory of CEA LIST is in charge of the development of remote technologies in order to meet the energy industry requirements. This paper reports the recent Research & Development activities in advanced remote systems for inspection or light intervention in hazardous environment with limited access as blind hot cells in nuclear fission industry and fusion facility vessels. A long reach carrier called Articulated Arm Inspection (AIA) will be described and current development of diagnostics and tools embedded for inspection or intervention will be presented.
