Visible to the public Control of Surgical Robots: Network Layer to Tissue Contact

Abstract

The original goals of this project were to take an existing open surgical robot testbed (the RAVEN robot), and to create a robust infrastructure for cyber-physical systems with which to extend traditional real-time control and teleoperation concepts. This is done by adding three new interfaces to the system:

Visible to the public Foundations of Cyber-Physical Networks

Abstract

Cyber Physical Systems (CPSs) integrate physical devices (e.g., sensors, cameras) with cyber components to form a situation-aware analytical system. The overall research objective of the project is to reveal cross-cutting fundamental scientific and engineering principles that underpin the integration of cyber and physical elements across all application sectors.
