    NCCR Robotics at TEDxZurich

    06.11.12 - NCCR-Robotics Robotics was in the spotlight at TEDxZurich, October 25th 2012 at the TV studios of SRF. Three NCCR Robotics members gave an exciting talk confirming that robotics is a promising field of research. Prof. Davide Scaramuzza talked about autonomous, vision-controlled micro flying robots and their future application, particularly for rescue operations. Prof. José Millán exposed the challenges of a brain-machine interface with the aim of monitoring the user’s brain activity and translating its intentions into actions. Lastly, Prof. Bradley Nelson spoke about his project of artificial bacteria, not bigger than few nanometres, that one day might be able to deliver drugs to specific locations in the body.
