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.

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.
