Lab automation is an interesting and growing robotics area. In 2019, Robotdalen, ABB and Karolinska collaborated in a Vinnova project where Robotdalen assisted with technical expertise. The project was about developing applications for flexible robot automation in hospitals.
In this application, for handling test tubes, ABB's collaborative robot YuMi works side by side with the care staff and thus facilitates their daily work.
The video below shows a demonstration of how the application works.
