Manchester Hospital Uses Versius for First Robotic Keyhole Surgery

Manchester Hospital Uses Versius for First Robotic Keyhole Surgery

Versius is portable, modular, and designed to be easily moved between operating theatres. Once in an operating theatre, it takes an average of 15 minutes to set up the system. This allows it to be used frequently, with one Versius robot capable of performing hundreds of operations each year.

Robots to Clear the Sea Bed of Plastic

Robots to Clear the Sea Bed of Plastic

86 million metric tons of plastics end up in the oceans every year, with devastating consequences for marine life, nature and, ultimately, for us humans. The vast floating patches of plastic carpeting the water's surface, some as large as entire countries, are only the tip of the iceberg. Around 90 percent of this garbage ends up on the seabed.

Laser Jolts Microscopic Electronic Robots into Motion

In 1959, former Cornell physicist Richard Feynman delivered his famous lecture "There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom," in which he described the opportunity for shrinking technology, from machines to computer chips, to incredibly small sizes. Well, the bottom just got more crowded

Automated Vehicle Technology Makes Parking Easier

Many people enjoy driving... until it's time to park. So why not leave the task to the vehicle? Ford Motor Company, Bedrock and Bosch are launching a demonstration project with connected Ford Escape test vehicles that can drive and park themselves inside Bedrock's Assembly Garage in Detroit using Bosch smart infrastructure.

Army Robo Teammate can Detect, Share 3D Changes in Real Time

Army Robo Teammate can Detect, Share 3D Changes in Real Time

Something is different, and you can't quite put your finger on it. But your robot can. Even small changes in your surroundings could indicate danger. Imagine a robot could detect those changes, and a warning could immediately alert you through a display in your eyeglasses. That is what U.S. Army scientists are developing with sensors, robots, real-time change detection and augmented reality wearables.

Versatile New Material Family Could Build Realistic Prosthetics

Versatile New Material Family Could Build Realistic Prosthetics

Nature's blueprint for the human limb is a carefully layered structure with stiff bone wrapped in layers of different soft tissue, like muscle and skin, all perfectly bound together. Achieving this kind of sophistication using synthetic materials to build biologically inspired robotic parts or multicomponent, complex machines has been an engineering challenge.

Powering Robots with Biomorphic Batteries

Powering Robots with Biomorphic Batteries

A new rechargeable zinc battery can provide much more energy and integrate into the structure of a robot like biological fat reserves store energy in animals. This approach to increasing capacity will be particularly important as robots shrink to the microscale and below—scales at which current stand-alone batteries are too big and inefficient.

Cutting Surgical Robots Down to Size

Cutting Surgical Robots Down to Size

Recently, surgical robots have started to appear in operating rooms to further assist surgeons by allowing them to manipulate multiple tools at once with greater precision, flexibility, and control than is possible with traditional techniques. However, these robotic systems are extremely large, often taking up an entire room, and their tools can be much larger than the delicate tissues and structures on which they operate.
