Innovative ideas für the helthcare of tomorrow
This year, the KUKA Innovation Award was all about medicine and healthcare. Under the motto "Robotics in Healthcare Challenge", talented individuals from the robotics community submitted their ideas and concepts over the past few months. An international jury of robotics and medtech experts, including Joe Mullings, selected the five finalists. In the next step, they implemented their ideas with a KUKA LBR Med – the first collaborative robot specifically certified for integration into a medical device. For this, the teams were provided with the KUKA robot and a vision system from Munich-based Roboception free of charge, and also received training on the hardware and software, as well as coaching from KUKA experts throughout the competition.
