The RAVEN surgical robot is a research instrument designed to support research in advanced techniques in robotic assisted surgery. The RAVEN-III design is based on two rounds of iterative improvement to the original RAVEN, developed at the University of Washington between 2002 and 2007 by Blake Hannaford and Jacob Rosen.  While not engineered to meet the requirements for human surgery, the system has been successfully employed in animal lab surgery.
