Robotic home assistant Care-O-bot 3: possible application areas in everyday support

Care-o-Bot3 Home SERVICE ROBOT 11096

Care-O-bot® is the product vision of a mobile service robot to assist humans in their daily life developed at Fraunhofer IPA. As an interactive butler, it is able to move reliably among humans, to detect and grasp typical household objects, and to safely exchange them with humans. At the same time it can be used to support communication with family members or a service centre, e.g. in case of an emergency. They also have the possibility to remote control the robot. This extends its abilities, e.g. when dealing with tasks that the robot isn’t able to solve autonomously.

da Vinci Surgical System


Edward Hospital now has the da Vinci Si Surgical System, the most advanced robotic technology available which can be used for a range of minimally invasive procedures in gynecology, urology, thoracic and general surgery. The da Vinci System provides surgeons with greater precision, control and access to hard-to-reach areas, allowing extremely complex operations to be performed through just a few small incisions instead of traditional open surgery.
