Axel Krieger | Autonomous Robotics in the Medical Device Field
Have you ever wondered how medical robots work? Join us in this interview with medical device roboticist Axel Krieger to learn how his team developed a fully autonomous robot that has been shown to produce surgical results superior to those produced by human surgeons. Axel is an assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Johns Hopkins University where he leads a team of students, scientists, and engineers in the research and development of robotic tools and laparoscopic devices. A few of the projects he has led include the development of a surgical robot called the smart tissue autonomous robot (or STAR for short) and using 3D printing for surgical planning and patient specific implants. https://imerse.lcsr.jhu.edu/Aaron Moncur, host ABOUT BEING AN ENGINEERThe Being an Engineer podcast is a repository for industry knowledge and a tool through which engineers learn about and connect with relevant companies, technologies, people resources, and opportunities.
