Accolade for Geriatronics and LongLeif Robotics
Last Saturday, visitors of the Geriatronics research center at Garmisch-Partenkirchen saw Garmi’s new mobile stand and human-like hands. ‘Garmi’ will allow the development of contactless diagnostics, an urgent feature amid threatening situations such as the corona pandemic.
The intelligent assist robot will help doctors talk and see the patient, receive a one-to-one transmission of the vital data, measure the pulse, and perform an ultrasound. The first study should start in six months. “The goal now is not that ‘Garmi’ can do as much as possible, but that he soon master the core aspects," said Prof. Haddadin, Garmi’s father and the acting director of the Munich School of Robotics and Machine Intelligence (MSRM).
Mayoress Elisabeth Koch (CSU) emphasized that “this technology will be revolutionary”. High-profile scientists also want to work at Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Recently, for example, said Professor Haddadin, the best of his class at a top US university contacted him: “He could really work all over the world - and he wants to go to Garmisch-Partenkirchen. In this regard, we are slowly approaching the radiance of the state capital."
