In this paper, the first active surgical robot system (OTTO) in a clinical environment for maxillofacial surgery is presented. The medical application is described from a technical point of view and the requirements for a robot in this speciality are defined. The paper describes the system architecture of the robotics environment and the need for research and development. The robot's hardware is based on a delta-kinematics robot system. At the current state of development, the robot can be used for inserting nonflexible catheters and for implanting bone fixtures in the skull
