Intelligent Surgical Robotics

Project description

Cognitive Systems and Robotics I-SUR will develop advanced technologies for automation in minimally invasive and open surgery. Currently, automation is not used in the operating room for a number of technical and legal reasons, but it may provide a solution to improve performance and efficiency without increasing operating costs. I-SUR aims at breaking new ground in automation in surgical intervention, in particular design of robotic surgical instruments, task modeling and control in highly uncertain and variable environments, medical situation awareness and its interaction with task control, surgeon-robot communication, and legal barrier identification. The project will demonstrate that an autonomous robotic surgical action, carried out with the developed technologies, can be as safe as currently achievable by traditional surgery.
