Some geographical locations have relatively few specialist medical practices. Getting an appointment with a specialist if you live in such areas might mean a long wait or a long journey. A study being carried out at the University of Tübingen is looking to improve this situation: the TeleDerm project involves dermatologists using telemedicine to assess skin disorders from images taken by GPs.
Robotic systems have great potential in the healthcare sector. For example, intelligent care aids, such as robotic technologies, extended care trolleys and lifters make life easier for nursing home and hospital staff. Mobile robots that assist with transport tasks or guiding people can help patients become more independent.
Sustainably cultivating arable land, ensuring good harvests, milking cows, paperwork - farmers are barely coping with their heavy daily workload. High-tech agricultural machinery and automated solutions help save time and resources. By contributing to shaping progress, agricultural businesses of all sizes can gain economic and ecological benefits.
