Ji Ma at the University of California Santa Cruz has successfully demonstrated an autonomous, vision-guided block transfer task using the RAVEN research robot. The FLS Block Transfer task is a standard test used to train and test surgeons. Now, it’s being used to train the RAVEN! Ji reports 100% success in block grasping and 94% success in placement. This is a huge step for the RAVEN community and comes hot on the heels of UC Berkeley’s successes with autonomous debridement.
