Colonoscopy is not everyone’s favorite procedure but it can save your life. In the future, advanced robots will be used to do the procedure while providing patients with a less unpleasant experience. This robotic colonoscope has a camera, functional skin with sinusoidal cavities and thick walls, and air tubes.

As the researchers explain, SMA springs are independently actuated to provide 9 DOFs to the robot. It can move at max speed of 4 mm/s.
