Advanced Manipulation and Automation
Devices that mimic and even surpass human dexterity or automate laboratory functions can improve productivity, safety, and medical technologies on a wide scale. SRI is advancing many technologies in these areas:
SRI is developing new technology to reliably control thousands of micro-robots for smart manufacturing of macro-scale products in compact, integrated systems.
With SRI as lead integrator, DARPA collaborators demonstrated how a remotely operated trauma pod could deliver emergency first-response treatment in the battlefield to stabilize patients for transport.
