Our vision is to HUMANIZE ROBOTICS enhancing standard applications and creating new qualified industrial and medical procedures with an easy-to-program, intuitive-to-use, plug-and-play, flexible and modular robotic control unit. A new easy-way to bring to the market high-level integrated robotics, towards almost Ø integration-cost, fast-to-convert, high-standard and ready-to-use robotic collaborative platforms
A novel paradigm, where humans and robots are members of the same team, can be possible through the integration of novel technologies capable of covering any non-regular surface to provide a robust and reliable awareness of the surrounding environment. High-range proximity detection is limited by the current technologies, that are capable of providing just a few centimeters of “safe” proximity range (i.e., pre-contact information). Our goal is to develop a LOW-COST, MODULAR and EASY-TO-USE technology optimized for interacting with human beings at a high distance range in both private and working environments.
Many recent developments in a wide variety of fields, such as artificial intelligence, image processing, sensing and cloud computing, have inspired Mediate Srl to “humanize” traditional industrial robotics by improving perception, intelligence and actuation (within a new easy-to-use and connected operating system). “Humanization” of standard robotics will allow executing – friendly – traditionally human-performed tasks, such as most of the operations faced everyday in SMEs but also in large enterprises.
Many medical procedures – such as laparoscopy, biopsy or colonoscopy – require precise manipulation of specialized tools and robots in order to be performed. The first medical platform Mediate Srl is going to commercialize is a collaborative robotic platform capable of performing a new pain-free colonoscopy. The platform – designed within the H2020-EU Project (Endoo, G.A.: 688592) – will bring to the medical scenario a painless new technique, as effective as current colonoscopy systems, for mass screening and early detection of colorectal cancer. Easy procedures by image-assisted robot-guided te
