Tuesday 28 June 2016 | 17:08 CET | News
Ericsson has teamed with King's College London to demonstrate a 5G use case of tactile robotic surgery at 5G World 2016 in London on 29-30 June. The 'Remote Control and Intervention' 5G medical use case will demonstrate a probe as a robotic representation of a biological finger that provides the surgeon with a sense of touch in minimally invasive surgery. This robotic finger can send accurate real time localisation of hard nodules in soft tissue. It is able to identify cancer tissue and send information back to the surgeon as haptic feedback.
