RoboSoft Newsletter with latest news from King’s CoRe

RoboSoft is a Coordination Action for Soft Robotics funded by the European Commission under the Future and Emerging Technologies – FET- Open Scheme (FP7-ICT-2013-C project # 619319). The March 2015 newsletter which also contains latest progress of the CoRe’s inflatable manipulator can be found here. Cela peut donc avoir des conséquences sur la véritable action du…

IEEE Spectrum: Enhanced Haptic Feedback Replace Surgeons’ Sense of Touch at King’s CoRe

IEEE Spectrum recently reported about haptic feedback solutions for minimally invasive surgery proposed by world-leading research groups. The article mentions the work  that the Centre for Robotics Research (CoRe) led by robotics expert Prof. Kaspar Althoefer at King’s College London has devised a system that tracks the probe’s spatial position, how deeply it indents the tissue, and the…

Service Robots – Flexible Helpers in Professional Use at CoRe

Service robotics in Europe is on the rise. The market entrance of Google, the establishment of the “Robo-Stox” index in 2013, special reports in magazines such as “The Economist” or “Der Spiegel” show it: service robotics is on the threshold of entering a new maturity level. Service robotics conquers new, commercial fields of application and…

IEEE Student Branch Event at King’s

Feeding Robot supported by King’s CoRe

Last Supper is a durational and interactive performance piece in which the artist wears a costume made of recycled machinery, such as, computers/printers as well as cooking utensils (an electric knife, ladle and spoon). anti-cool made the costume called “The Feeding Robot” using applied robotics technology. This allowed it to become interactive and controlled by…

East London Science School visit CoRe labs

We were very excited to show how we do robotics experiments and how we make simple robots to students from the East London Science School. Hope their determination to lead scientific careers further solidified. It was very encouraging to see the depth of their questions. One child asked – “how do you get ideas to…

The 2015 Innovative Surgical Robotics Forum – 18 March 2015

This event is for any healthcare professional, academic or company interested in discussing the challenges, current barriers and ways to move forward in the arena of surgical robots. The global market for medical robotics and computer-assisted surgical (MRCAS) equipment was worth nearly $2.7 billion in 2013. The market is projected to approach $3.3 billion in…
