  The robotic arm which has been used extensively for industrial and research applications has also been applied in precision robotic applications. The addition of a further degree of freedom at the wrist gives a superior advantage over the surgeon's hand, The added capability is of immense importance in various delicate procedures. At present most robotic grippers rely on remote human control, where errors due to overshoot, tolerance, and actuation delay can occur. Visual feedback may correct for such inherent machine and human errors. AI and neural networks with human oversight may provide more precise guidance to the robot end piece for medical and other applications. The state of the art is outlined.
