Visible to the public A Framework for Validation and Monitoring of Robotic Surgery Systems

Abstract:

The objective of this research is the development of a framework for assessing the reliability and safety of robotic surgery systems during development, field testing, and general deployment. The framework uses accurate simulations to assess pre-clinical reliability before deployment. After deployment, the framework uses data collection through online monitoring of the system as it is being used in the field, followed by analysis to obtain assessments of operational reliability and safety.

Visible to the public Safety-Oriented Hybrid Verification of Medical Robotics

Abstract:

Motivation and goal: The whole-system design and modeling of complex medical robotics involves analog sensors and actuators; discrete software controllers; piecewise, non-linear, discontinuous biological tissues/media; and probabilistic human administrators.

In the best case, the failure of such systems risks limb. In the worst, life.
