The MIRO Innovation Lab (MIL) is coordinated by DLR’s Institute for Robotics and Mechatronics.
The Institute develops a wide array of robots to enable humans to interact more safely and efficiently with their surrounding environments. The robots are designed to act in surroundings inaccessible or dangerous to humans as well as to support humans in everyday life and work.
Since more than 15 years the field of medical technology has been a major focus of the research activities. The successfully completed projects include among others
- the implementation of a robot-assisted endoscope guidance (1996 – 2008),
- the development of the ventricular assist device (VAD) DLR Heart (2002 – 2004), which was licensed by DUALIS MedTech GmbH,
- and the development of the versatile surgical robot DLR KineMedic (2002 – 2007) in cooperation with Brainlab AG.
- Its further development DLR MIRO forms the basis for the current research activities in the medical field.
