French Professor (and his robot) visits Foley's

On Friday 2nd December, Professor Pierre Vieyres from the University of Orleans  visited Foley's to talk to the Sixth  Form. Prof. Vieyre's talk covered the history of robotics, with a particular emphasis on medical robots. He brought along a robotic ultrasound scanner which he has been working on in collaboration with his colleague, Dr Soteris Avgousti, from the Cyprus University of Technology. The Sixth Formers had the chance to operate the robot which is designed for use in isolated locations, such as on board a spacecraft, and can be operated remotely via satellite communication or the internet. In pioneering experiments in 2003, a doctor in France performed an ultrasound scan on a patient in Cyprus using this robot!
