Robots as assistants in the operating room

Interview with our scientific head Lukas Bernhard about the research project AURORA.

After almost three years of development, the time has come: For the first time, a robot in the experimental operating theatre of the MITI research group takes over the tasks of an "operating theatre jumper" in the non-sterile area. He fetches sterile materials - such as suture material or surgical gloves - from the warehouse, brings them to the operating theatre, opens the packaging and hands the sterile goods to the surgeon. Lukas Bernhard talks about the capabilities of the AURORA robot: here.
