#ICRAcam (Part 4): Robot-assisted microsurgery, clothing de-wrinkler, collaborative interaction, & 3D scene reconstruction

June 30, 2015

ICRAcam_00_900pxwIn Part Four of our ICRAcam series, you’ll learn about control for a microsurgical device for soft tissue, a robot that can find wrinkles in clothing and straighten them out, collaborative task learning and 3D scene reconstruction. A special thanks to IEEE RAS ICRA, who allowed us to film at the event to bring you 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! Check out all our ICRA coverage here
