How robots could be used to fight Ebolamardi 11 novembre 2014
As more people die from the virus, robotics experts are looking for ways to enlist robots in the fight to contain Ebola in the coming months and years.
When most people hear the word Ebola, they envision hazmat suits and quarantined hospital rooms. But UC Berkeley engineering professor Ken Goldberg envisions robots helping with specific tasks to keep humans out of harms way. His expertise in robotics is why the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy encouraged him and researchers in three other universities and research centers to hold brainstorming sessions on ways to enlist robots in the fight against the contagious and deadly disease.
