Public Benefits of Drone Technology

Drones offer some promising solutions to some of our perennial public challenges. We'll take a look at a few key areas in which they're already starting to make a difference across various community issues.

RoboticsTomorrow - Special Tradeshow Coverage
ATX West, MD&M and Design & Manufacturing

ATX West, MD&M, Plastic West, West Pack and Design & Manufacturing take place in Anaheim, CA February 11th - 13th. This RoboticsTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years events.

Robots Assisting with Physical Therapy

Physical therapists are crucial to the design, development, and the operation of sensing technologies and robotic interfaces. Physical therapists are proactive partners, who work with engineers to encourage discoveries that will enhance best practice principles for patients.

The Surgical Robot that Unfolds Inside the Abdomen

The start-up company NISI (HK) Limited is currently developing a miniature surgical robot that can be inserted though natural openings in the body and only unfolds inside the abdomen.

ABB demonstrates concept of mobile laboratory robot for Hospital of the Future

• Mobile and autonomous YuMi® laboratory robot will be designed to work alongside medical staff and lab workers • New robotics technologies will be developed in ABB's first global healthcare research hub at Texas Medical Center (TMC) Innovation Institute in Houston

Next-Gen Control System for Prosthetics

At its core, the Coapt Gen2 system uses algorithmic pattern classification to determine wearers' intuitive, real-time intent for moving the joints of a prosthetic arm and/or hand.

Diligent Robotics Announces Market Launch of Moxi and $3M Seed Funding

Backed by True Ventures and Ubiquity Ventures, the Austin-based robotics company is announcing its first full-time hospital customer implementing the robot full-time

Training Surgeons to Use Robotic Systems

Finding a way to more efficiently train our surgical teams and gain insight into their technical ability is paramount to optimizing patient safety and value.

Bringing Robotic Surgery to Places Where Others Don't Want to Go

Our concentration is to develop a surgical robot to go where it is needed the most, bringing the best competencies to where the injury happened. After all, if we can pilot a drone we should be able to operate a surgical robot.

ABB Robotics to Develop Solutions for the Hospital of the Future

ABB's research team will work on the TMC campus with medical staff, scientists and engineers to develop non-surgical medical robotics systems, including logistics and next-generation automated laboratory technologies.

Treating Heart Disease with Robotic Precision and Safety

Stereotaxis Robotic Magnetic Navigation (RMN) enables physicians to better perform cardiac ablation procedures (the least invasive type of heart surgery) by providing unprecedented catheter precision and stability inside the delicate tissue of a beating heart.

Robotics in Cancer Surgery

Technological advances in robotic surgery allow for more complicated, less invasive procedures to be performed, which is helping cancer patients who previously may have needed invasive, risky surgeries.

Surgical Robots and Their Rapid Adoption in Minimally Invasive Surgeries

By using robot arms controlled through a computer, surgeons are now able to perform small incision surgeries that are minimally invasive and offer an improved level of precision.

The Strangest Reasons We've Seen Robots Engineered For So Far

Robots - we can't live with them and we can't live without them. Some potential applications of robotics are strange but ultimately very promising, while others seem downright pointless.

Robots to Perform Spinal Surgery With Pinpoint Accuracy

This technology has the potential to minimise those risks by performing a key part of the operation with accuracy which cannot be achieved by a human hand.

Honeywell Intelligrated - Solve Loading Dock Challenges With Robotic Unloading

Challenges on the loading dock are characteristic of greater pressures from the rise of e-commerce. Loading and unloading freight from trailers, trucks and shipping containers are arduous, repetitive tasks plagued by high turnover. Even with regularly available staff, manually unloading freight and the constant lifting and twisting results in fatigue and inconsistent, declining productivity. Robotics capable of fully automating unloading tasks bring a new paradigm to the dock. High performance and flexibility push unloading from a labor-heavy, manual chore to an automated, refined process. High-performing DC workers can take more desirable positions, with relief from unpleasant work conditions. Management gets to replace uncertainty and staffing challenges with a reliable, automated process, with data to fuel continuous improvement.
