The Robotics, Automation, and Medical Systems (RAMS) Laboratory

Located in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, within the A. James Clark School of Engineering at University of Maryland, College Park. The lab focuses primarily on research in the areas of Medical Robotics both at the macro and micro scale. Specifically, RAMS lab research is targeted towards:

  • Image-guided Robotics
  • Haptic (sense of touch) interfaces for Robot-assisted Surgery
  • Reality-based soft-tissue modeling for Surgical Simulation
  • Model-based teleoperation in Robot-assisted surgery, and
  • Cell manipulation
