#ICRAcam (Part 2): Handheld cobots, magnetic manipulators, mini robotic probes, and the Butterfly problem revisited
Thanks to IEEE RAS ICRA, who allowed us to film at the event, we’ve got some more highlights from some of this year’s exciting papers. We’ll be sharing lots more ICRAcam videos over the next couple of weeks, so watch this space! In Part Two: cooperative handheld robots, reconfigurable magnetic manipulation in medical robotics, mini robotic probes for surgery, and a new approach to the Butterfly Robot benchmark. Check out all our ICRA coverage here.
