Current Sites

BioRobotics Laboratory – University of Washington, Seattle, WA

The Raven I was developed at the University of Washington by Applied Dexterity Co-Founders Blake Hannaford and Jacob Rosen and their students. The electronics and software for Raven II were developed at the UW and the lab continues to support the system while researching cutting-edge techniques for Surgeon skill evaluation, haptics in teleoperation and virtual fixtures.
