Instrumentation of the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingArticle in proceedingResearchpeer-review


This paper details the AAU surgical robot, its hardware and software setup. The aim of the paper is to explain how a surgical robot has been rebuild as an open source platform for research in surgical robotics. As a result, the robot has full actuation and sensing capabilities at high sampling rate.

We aim at exploiting the developed surgical robot for research in semi-autonomous control, and safety mechanisms in the context of robotic surgery.
