Enhancing Healthcare with Assistive Robotic Mobile Manipulation

Project description

Assistive robotics for healthcare

With pressure mounting on healthcare systems worldwide, assistive healthcare robotics is becoming an increasingly attractive option to address current challenges. The EU-funded HARMONY project aims to introduce robust, flexible and safe autonomous mobile manipulation robots for use in human-centred environments by making fundamental contributions to cognitive mechatronic technologies. The end-user partners have identified two areas where the new technology would provide the most benefits: the automation of just-in-time delivery tasks and the automation of hospital bioassay sample flow. HARMONY will demonstrate the new solutions, proving that robotic mobile manipulation systems can indeed meet the growing needs in the healthcare sector and beyond.
