Safety approval for RAVEN Electronics

Yesterday, a representative from the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) made the trek down to Seattle to inspect the electronics that will be headed shortly to the University of Western Ontario. The systems were given the approval of the CSA and are now proudly wearing the blue sticker with the official seal of approval for electrical shock and fire safety. We are very proud of this achievement and will be able to furnish this safety specification to local and international customers in the future!

Applied Dexterity at ICRA 2013

Earlier this week we shipped a Raven System to Europe for demoing at the International Conference on Robotics and Automation in Karlsruhe, Germany! We look forward to meeting and sharing the RAVEN with our fellow robotics enthusiasts. After the week of exhibiting the RAVEN, it will be delivered to The Montpellier Laboratory of Informatics, Robotics, and Microelectronics in Montpellier, France so they can begin contributing to the RAVEN community. If you are going to be in attendance at ICRA or would like more information, please contact us at info [at] applieddexterity [dot] com!

RAVEN Featured in The Economist

In January of 2012 the RAVEN community gained 5 more members, which triggered a lot of buzz about the RAVEN and open source surgical robots. University of Washington press was on hand at the open-house to document the event and the word spread quickly. The Economist featured the RAVEN in its March 2012 print edition and again in June when exploring open source medical devices.
