Momen Abayazid has developed a robot-assisted system that aims to make medical procedures involving needles more precise. The flexible needles are steered in real time to their target and tracked with ultrasound imaging, allowing it to attain sub-millimeter levels of accuracy. Clinical trials are expected to begin in 2 - 3 years. #whyisit #medical #surgery #robot #robotics #ultrasound #needles #accuracy
Birds served as the inspiration for a robot that could prove to be the world's fastest on two mechanical feet. Researchers in the Dynamic Robotics Laboratory at Oregon State University are working on the robot they call ATRIAS, whose carbon-fiber legs will employ fiberglass springs to operate like a pogo stick. The robot could be useful in disaster areas that are too dangerous for humans to enter.
