In an operating theatre near you, it is soon likely that ‘seeing’ robots will literally be working at the cutting edge.
The Australian Centre for Robotic Vision’s Medical and Healthcare Robotics Group, headquartered at QUT, is developing medical robotic technology to help increase quality of healthcare, improve patient recovery time and reduce the need for further medical intervention.
The group is led by Centre Chief Investigator Jonathan Roberts and Associate Investigator Ross Crawford, who doubles as an orthopaedic surgeon. It also comprises engineers, scientists, biologists and industrial designers – all working together to solve complex problems.
In latest news, the researchers are developing a new class of surgical robots able to look inside the body in real time thanks to a multimodal imaging system that uses 3D ultrasound technology to guide robotic vision for keyhole surgery. Their work is today featured in The Courier Mail.
More information on the work of the Centre’s Medical and Healthcare Robotics Group is covered in the Centre’s latest Annual Report. Read it now>>
