GRASP Special Seminar – Hawkeye King, University of Washington, “Telerobotic Surgery Research With the Raven Surgical System”

June 8, 2012 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Abstract: Surgical robots create computer mediated, telepresence interaction with
a remote operative area. This opens the door to numerous capabilities
including remote teleoperation, and computer guidance via haptic
tactile overlays, i.e., virtual fixtures. Also, since this is a very
new (<2 decades) field, there are few established standards in telesurgery with divergent technologies. This talk presents my ongoing research at the UW BioRobotics Laboratory in telepresence surgery. I will discuss past experiments in remote telesurgery and telerobotic interoperability. Also, I will give details of the recently completed Raven II research surgical robot which is now in use by research groups around the U.S. and describe some of the research being done with the system at the UW.
