Robotics: Joint venture between Edinburgh University and Heriot-Watt. Ipoh
Researchers exploring how robots could transform healthcare have received nearly £1m to help develop new technologies.
The funding will allow the Edinburgh Centre for Robotics (ECR) to develop four new robots and investigate how they could be used in different areas of the healthcare system.
The centre, a joint initiative between Heriot-Watt University and the University of Edinburgh, was awarded the cash by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
Professor David Lane, of Heriot-Watt University, said: “The Edinburgh Centre for Robotics is a unique collaboration designed to test the feasibility of applying robotic solutions to many real-world scenarios and challenges. This funding provides a further boost to our available technology capital.
“Part of this investment will support our research into affordable, robot-assisted surgical and diagnostic devices that can benefit the NHS, as well as be used
