Magnetically-actuated bio-inspired soft robots
Magnetic actuation has the advantages of requiring no on-board power source, untethered control and easy “programmability”. Our aim to harness the advantages of magne...
Compliant design of continuum manipulators
Continuum manipulators have the ability to conform to their environment and perform tasks in restricted spaces due to their redundant degrees of freedom. This makes them ...
Real-time shape sensing for flexible instruments
Flexible minimally invasive surgical instruments can be used to reach difficult-to-reach locations within the human body. Accurately steering these instruments requires ...
Multi steerable catheters for cardiac interventions
SRL develops systems to control steerable instruments to compensate for beating heart motion.
Magnetically-actuated steerable robots
Advanced Robotics for Magnetic Manipulation (ARMM) system could assist clinicians with the magnetic actuation of endovascular catheters.
