  • Modeling and Analysis of Multi-Purpose Hybrid Surgical Robot

    Robotic surgery revolution has not just assisted surgeons to perform complicated surgeries but also increased accuracy, reduced risk, operative and recovery time. Parallel architecture is widely used for designing of surgical robots due to its advantage of low inertia and high precision. But their workspace is confined and limited to specific surgical procedures. In this research work, a hybrid architecture is proposed and its modeling and analysis is presented. This architecture includes both parallel and serial manipulators with six and two degree of freedom respectively. Kinematic analysis of hybrid platform is presented focusing on derivation of inverse kinematics for the surgical tool positioning. Dynamic modelling of hybrid surgical robot is performed in MATLAB Simscape Multibody for analysis and simulation. The positional accuracy of surgical system is achieved using feedback control. Design of hybrid surgical robot shows that the proposed system achieved better positional accuracy and desired workspace. Analysis of torque requirements in dynamic simulation shows that it is achievable for the desired hybrid surgical system.

  • Real-time collision-free path planning for robot manipulator based on octree model

    This paper presents a real-time approach to generate the path of robot manipulator. In this approach, octree model is used to express environment and detect collision. The arms of robot in space are expressed by a set of points on the surface of them. Then the distance between manipulator and obstacle is estimated by the potential generated by octree modeling. Based on the distance estimated, graph search is executed to find a path. The effectiveness of the approach is proved by simulations and the experiments realized by a FANUC robot, LR Mate 200iB. At last, the calculation time of proposed approach is compared with the result of typical graph search approach. The result shows that our approach is faster. It can act as real-time path planner. Whereas the approach of typical graph search is slow for real-time path planning

  • HelpMate: A robotic courier for hospital use

    HelpMate has been designed to perform fetch and carry tasks while exhibiting humanlike behavior as it navigates down crowded hallways in the hospital. The tasks typically performed by the robot are carrying late meal trays, sterile supplies, medications, medical records, reports, samples, specimens, and mail. HelpMate is able to traverse the main arteries of hospitals, crossing between the buildings using interconnected corridors and elevators. Odometry-based navigation is enhanced by sonar, infrared, and vision sensors which aid in obstacle detection and avoidance maneuvers. A map of the hospital is made available to HelpMate, from which it is able to generate a path from any location in the hospital to any destination. An extremely simple human interface has been specially designed for this application. The onboard screen, emergency stops, warning lights, turn signals, and pause buttons provide easy and quick interaction with the system.<<ETX>>

  • Image-guided manipulator compliant surgical planning methodology for robotic skull-base surgery

    In robotic skull-base surgery, a surgical navigation and planning station is used to plan the path to be taken by the bone removal tool which is carried by a robotic manipulator. In planning for such a path, considerations have to be taken in terms of the manipulator characteristics and the geometric properties of the bone removal tool used. Presented in this paper is a methodology which takes into account the required efficacy of surgical planning. Differing from other surgical planning methodologies, the final output of the planned surgery can be directly executed by a surgical robot (NeuRobot). In doing so, the surgeon has only to specify the region or features within the skull-base which are to be avoided and the general direction of action which specifies the eventual path that the surgery is to be carried out. A novel approach is taken by the use of Voronoi maps to identify "safe" cavities on each image slice.

  • A Novel Finite Element Method based Biomechanical Model for HIT-Robot Assisted Orthopedic Surgery System

    To build a biomechanical human model can make much sense for surgical training and surgical rehearse. Especially, it will be more meaningful to develop a biomechanical model to guide the control strategy for the medical robots in HIT-Robot Assisted Orthopedic Surgery System (HIT-RAOS). In this paper, based the successful work of others, a novel reliable finite element method based biomechanical model for HIT-RAOS was developed to simulate the force needed in reposition procedure. Geometrical model was obtained from 3D reconstruction from CT images of a just died man. Using this boundary information, the finite element model of the leg including part of femur, broken upper tibia, broken lower tibia, talus, calcaneus, Kirschner nail, muscles and other soft tissues was created in ANSYS. Furthermore, as it was too difficult to reconstruct the accurate geometry model from CT images, a new simplified muscle model was presented. The bony structures and tendons were defined as linearly elastic, while soft tissues and muscle fibers were assumed to be hyper elastic. To validate this model, the same dead man was involved to simulate the patient, and a set of data of the force needed to separate the two broken bones and the distance between them in reposition procedure was recorded. Then, another set of data was acquired from the finite element analysis. After comparison, the two sets of data matched well. The Finite Element model was proved to be acceptable

  • A navigation system framework for a semi-autonomous mobile robot

    A description is given of a project which is aimed at developing a mobile robotic aid for the severely motor handicapped. The ultimate objective is to produce a system which can accomplish a desired task semi-autonomously, i.e. given only simple high-level commands from a user. An essential component of such a system is a facility for guiding the robot within a household environment. Toward this end, a series of navigation and path-planning routines have been developed using artificial-intelligence search techniques within a LISP programming environment.<<ETX>>

  • Sliding mode control with sliding perturbation observer for surgical robots

    Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) robot is made like a long cylinder with small diameter that can fit through a small incision thus decreasing the amount of healthy tissue damaged. Because of the shape of the surgical robot, the cable- driven mechanism is using to the robot. However this is a highly nonlinear system so the performance of the system is not so good. This paper applied a robust motion control algorithm. The algorithm uses partial state feedback for a class of nonlinear systems with modeling uncertainties and external disturbances. The major contribution is the design of a robust observer for the state and the perturbation of the instrument of the surgical robot, which is combined with a variable structure controller (VSC). The combination of controller and observer provides the robust routine called sliding mode control with sliding perturbation observer (SMCSPO). The control performance of the proposed algorithm is evaluated by the simulation and experiment to apply to a two-degree-of-freedom (DOF) robot arm. The results showed high accuracy and good performance.

  • The Inclinometer Research for Attitude Control

    In the mobile robot attitude control technology, the angle is an important property of attitude control, the study of high precision inclinometer is very essential. A high precision inclinometer which can automatically eliminate the zero offset is presented in this paper. The theory is based on the ancient method that the level bar can find horizon by rotating 180deg. It is designed by step motor and MCU control technology. The theoretical basis, design structure and experimental results of the inclinometer are described. The experimental results show that the method can significantly improve the accuracy of the instrument.

  • Medical Robotics and the Operating Room of the Future

    Medical robotics is an evolving field with a relatively short history and limited market penetration, although some recent systems have shown some commercial success. Nevertheless, medical robotics shows great promise for improving patient care and may become a key component in the operating room of the future (ORF), where high technology equipment will be integrated with medical imaging. This paper gives an overview of the medical robotics field and summarizes a recent ORF workshop in which participants concluded that standards are critical for an integrated approach
