Touch-sensitive robot arm envisioned, in part, as patient care device

Roboticists at the Georgia Institute of Technology's Department of Biomedical Engineering have come up with a robot arm that is touch-sensitive and can move and find various objects. As The New York Times reports, the idea is that the robots could work with humans in factories, be used in rescue missions or be deployed as devices that help care for patients in hospitals or rehab centers, performing basic tasks. Such a robot contrasts with Intuitive Surgical's da Vinci surgical robots, which are designed to aid in various surgical procedures. Story
