10123844 | Software center and highly configurable robotic systems for surgery and other uses | Intuitive Surgical
Improved surgical manipulators for minimally invasive surgeries are presented in this patent by Intuitive Surgical. The manipulators have more degrees of freedom and redundant degrees of freedom which allows them to have a wider range of configurations. Moreover, a system to inhibit manipulator collision is also installed. Ideally, these advantages are provided without increasing the size and costs of these systems.

10123842 | Surgical robotic cart immobilizer | Covidien LP
The combination of mobile and arm robots has improved the surgical systems especially in minimally invasive surgical procedures. This patent by Covidien discloses another feature to improve these robots: an immobilizer to stabilize the operation of surgical robots. This immobilizer locks the robot to its ideal position during minimally invasive procedures. This invention greatly improves the accuracy, precision, and speed of the said procedures.

10124494 | Coordinated water environment mobile robots | Saudi Arabian Oil Co
Inspection of underwater pipelines and structures are made easier by the robots disclosed in patent, which are configured to cooperate with one another. The robots support each other by having a stabilization system to balance underwater structures in contact with them.

10129177 | Inter-cloud broker for hybrid cloud networks | Cisco
Several private or public cloud data centers interoperate to provide services to various applications. These interoperating cloud data centers are referred to as “hybrid” cloud.
