Robot eliminates bacteria and microorganisms in hospitals

Robot eliminates bacteria and microorganisms in hospitals
The 15th Innovation and Entrepreneurship Award in Robotics and Automation (IERA) goes to the 'UVD Robot' by Blue Ocean Robotics. The collaborative robot autonomously drives around hospitals while emitting concentrated UV-C light to eliminate bacteria and other harmful microorganisms. As a result, hospitals can guarantee a 99.99% disinfection rate - reducing the risk for patients, staff and relatives of contracting dangerous infections.

Life scientists use robots to test cells by the billion

Life scientists use robots to test cells by the billion
An automated primary antibody screening workcell for early stage development of potential new treatments for central nervous system and immunology disorders has been designed and constructed for UCB S.A. by Peak Analysis and Automation (PAA). Built around a Mitsubishi Electric robot, the workcell speeds up the process of antibody discovery by allowing the screening of billions of antibody producing B cells.

Decoding robotic surgery skills

Decoding robotic surgery skills
Researchers from the Keck School of Medicine of USC are looking to technology to help deconstruct expert surgeons' robotic surgery skills so they can create an objective, standardised way to train the next generation of surgeons. Using a data recorder plugged into a robotic surgery system, the team analysed expert and novice surgeons' movements during the reconstruction step of robotic radical prostatectomy, a common surgery for prostate cancer.
