Abstract

Are robots going to help us?
Cars will evolve into iPads on wheels and all kinds of robots will help do our job and take care for the ill and elderly. In our research we create precision surgery robots. Examples are the world’s first eye surgical robot (Preceyes) with unique accuracy levels, enabling operations for the retina and a micro surgical instrument (Microsure) for use in reconstructive surgery. For the skull base we are developing an autonomous image guided bone robot (RoboSculpt). For the care sector, the developments are focusing on world-modelling and smart algorithms to enable robotics for use in homes, hospitals and senior homes. We make also use of our experience as world champions in soccer robotics!
