Cognitive AutonomouS CAtheter operating in Dynamic Environments

Project description


Cognitive Systems and Robotics

Recent efforts in robotics and automation research have fostered the development of a wide variety of bio-inspired snake-like continuum robots. Robotic catheters are a particularly challenging specialization of continuum robots because the vascular tree surrounding the catheter is complex, delicate, deformable and highly dynamic. CASCADE will develop a unified control framework for continuum robots that can operate in the cardiovascular system. An interface to the supervising surgeon will enable cognitive links between the operator and the continuum robot, facilitating complementary assistance during autonomous execution of surgical tasks. CASCADE will advance the treatment of cardiovascular diseases by providing a new dexterous and intelligent instrument that is initially focused on endovascular aortic valve replacement.
