Johns Hopkins University researchers developed a robotic surgical system called the Smart Tissue Automation Robot (STAR). It features a 3D imaging system and a near-infrared sensor to spot fluorescent markers along the edges of the tissue to keep the robotic suture needle on track. Unlike most other robot-assisted surgical systems, it operates under the surgeon’s supervision, but without hands-on guidance.
Researchers from Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a web Interface that uses augmented reality technology could help individuals with profound motor impairments operate a humanoid robot to feed themselves and perform routine personal care tasks such as scratching an itch and applying skin lotion.
The web-based interface displays a “robot’s eye view” of surroundings to help users interact with the world through the machine.
Robots are becoming integral part of our Life. Robots have started playing significant role in each and every field. Their ability is getting improved sharply day by day due to the fast development of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Apart from getting used as Toys for Kids, Robots are becoming friends and act as care takers for elders in Japan. Even they do dangerous jobs, such as detecting and dismantling mines.
These non-living Objects are getting trained to act with Human emotions. So, people are struggling to set their moral stance toward these non-living objects.
During previous research, People refused to turn off Robot when it asked them not to, even though they were instructed to turn off the Robot. That showed that People started giving more priority to Robot over Human.
A new research from Radboud University shows that People are prepared to save a robot at the cost of human lives under certain conditions. One of these situations is when we believe the robot can experience pain.
Scientists at EPFL and ETH Zurich have developed tiny elastic robots that can change shape depending on their surroundings. Modeled after bacteria and fully biocompatible, these robots optimize their movements so as to get to hard-to-reach areas of the human body. They stand to revolutionize targeted drug delivery.
One day we may be able to ingest tiny robots that deliver drugs directly to diseased tissue, thanks to research being carried out at EPFL and ETH Zurich.
