A first in medical robotics: Autonomous navigation inside the body: Robotic catheter, using a novel sensor informed by AI and image processing, makes its own way to a leaky heart valve — ScienceDaily

Bioengineers report the first demonstration of a robot able to navigate autonomously inside the body. In an animal model of cardiac valve repair, the team programmed a robotic catheter to find its way along the walls of a beating, blood-filled heart to a leaky valve — without a surgeon’s guidance.
