EDEN2020 Consortium Begin Preparations for IROS 2018

June 20, 2018

This coming October, members of the EDEN2020 Consortium will travel to Madrid for the world-renowned IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS 2018). The conference will provide a platform to share significant insights and findings from our project to-date and knowledge sharing on an international scale within the robotics industry and significant media coverage.

The event that takes place from Monday 1st until Friday 5th October 2018, will incorporate R&D activities as plenary & keynote presentations, special sessions, workshops, tutorials and forums. Our team are absolutely thrilled to be a part of this prestigious conference and have the privilege of hosting our own workshop, as well as exhibiting at the event.

The EDEN2020 workshop entitled ‘Assistive Technologies for Precision Neurosurgery: Current Successes and Future Challenges’ will be held on Monday 1st October. The workshop will specifically focus on key robotic technologies within the context of neuro and skull-base surgery organised around the following key themes: Tool sensorisation, including shape sensing, intraoperative tool and tissue tracking, Doppler imaging, Raman spectroscopy; new mechanisms, including new hardware platforms and surgical systems for research and commercial exploitation; new control approaches, including automatic trajectory tracking, shared control, teleoperation, etc.; and new clinical applications, including neurosurgical drug delivery, minimally invasive surgery and chronic disease management.

The team, led by Imperial College London, will be providing information and demonstrations of their work at the EDEN2020 stall throughout the length of the conference.
