Transparent Bilateral Control with On-line Identification of Tissue Parameters for Telesurgery Robotic Systems

Mojtaba Sharifi; Saeid Behzadipour; Hasan Salarieh; Farzam Farahmand

Volume 9, Issue 1 , April 2015, , Pages 85-98

  In this paper, a transparent bilateral controller is developed for the control of telesurgery systems that have physical interactions with soft tissue. In this control method, the parameters of a viscoelastic model of the soft tissue are estimated during its interaction with the slave robot using an ...  Read More

A New Hybrid Algorithm for Simulation of Cutting Soft Tissue Using Finite Element Method

Marzie Saeidirad; Heidar Ali Talebi; Mohammad Zareinejad; Mohammad Reza Dehghan

Volume 7, Issue 4 , June 2013, , Pages 287-296

  Computationally fast biomechanical models are required to present the actual behavior of soft tissue in real-time simulation. These models are applied in medical diagnosis, surgical planning and training. One of the challenges in the surgical simulation is soft tissue cutting that requires topology changes ...  Read More

Intra-operative 3D navigation and TRE reduction in image guided spine surgery

Marzie Ershad; Alireza Ahmadian; Houshang Saberi

Volume 7, Issue 2 , June 2013, , Pages 155-162

  Registration of preoperative images to intra-operative patient space is a crucial step in image guided surgery for tracking surgical tools relative to patient’s anatomy. In image guided spine surgery, due to the difference in patient’s positioning in preoperative imaging, compared with intra-operative ...  Read More

Vibration control of Bilateral Nonlinear Telesurgical System for Flexible Link Slave Robot

Mohadese Yaryan; Mahyar Naraghi; Seyed Mehdi Rezaei; Mohammad Zareinejad; Hamed Ghafarirad

Volume 6, Issue 4 , June 2012, , Pages 287-297

  This paper addresses a new control scheme for bilateral telesurgical system with flexible links surgical robot. In this regard, hybrid structure of feedback and feedforward controller is suggested for flexible slave robot. This approach utilizes capability of Input Shaping (IS) as feedforward controller ...  Read More
