Current Projects


Semiautonomous telerobotic examination suite
The provision of medical expertise is limited in many areas of the world due to centralisation of health systems and poor infrastructure. There is also a shortage of specialised doctors and nurses. One goal of the 6G-life project is to reduce the imbalance between metropolitan and rural areas by establishing medical telepresence and high-precision telediagnostics. A prototypical demonstrator for a mobile telemedical system integrating 6G network concepts is to be developed, which is equipped for acute and elective diagnostics.
