Autonomy and standardization in healthcare robotics

Track: Healthcare

Date and Time: 15 Mar 2024 11:40-13:00

Organisers: Françoise Siepel

Main questions to be answered – Q1: What is important for autonomy in successful robotic clinical implementation?

Workshop Description: This workshop addresses autonomy in robotics to boost the transfer of technological innovation based on clinical end-user needs. High level of autonomy combined with safety and efficiency in the clinical workflow is a challenge due to complex and high interactive dynamic environments in the healthcare sector. Standardization of the autonomy levels is one of the essential aspects to embed robots at a large scale in the healthcare sector. This workshop presents the work of the healthcare TG related to autonomy in the form of a paper which will be discussed with the audience. Consequently, it will be discussed what this means for large scale adoption of new robotic technology at European scale. This workshop will be interesting for SMEs, policy makers, investors, technology providers, healthcare professionals and all interested in the topic.

Intended Outcome: Workshop covering material new to ERF that the Robotics community should engage with, Workshop expected to create a roadmap or white paper, Workshops engaging non-roboticists to understand needs/goals (policy, commercial, technical), optimized paper

Approach: Agenda (80 min): Introduction TG (5 min) Autonomy – presentation article (10 min) Common experience (4×5 min = 20min) – lead to better definition of autonomy Interactive program + board discussion – to optimize paper (40 min) Wrap up (5 min)
