Surgical Robot Challenge is a world-renowned event open for application to showcase the latest innovations in the field of surgical robotics. This international event is annually organized by The Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC), and UK Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) Network. Over the last two years, many research institutes worldwide, such as UC Berkeley, Imperial College London, Vanderbilt University, The Hospital for Sick Children, and Israel Institute of Technology, have actively joined the event.
In this year, the HKU team was shortlisted to participate in the final round of the challenge, in which a catheter robot newly-developed was demonstrated, together with twelve other teams….
