UC Santa Cruz robotics professor enlists universities' help

A University of California, Santa Cruz researcher has taken an unusual step and forged an open-source arrangement with a number of leading universities nationwide in an effort to further develop his robotic surgery system.
Jacob Rosen, associate professor in the department of computer engineering at the Baskin School of Engineering at the UC Santa Cruz, has distributed his Raven II surgical robot to researchers at UCLA, Harvard University, Johns Hopkins University, the University of Nebraska and the University of California, Berkeley. He said open-source agreements between universities are common in software research, but not with hardware. This project will apply to both.
