This paper describes experiments to characterize this problem, as well as several methods to provide haptic feedback in order to improve surgeon's performance

    Ultrasound examinations represent one of the major diagnostic modalities of future healthcare. They are currently used to support medical space research but require a high skilled operator for both probe positioning on the patient's skin and image interpretation. TERESA is a tele-echography project that proposes a solution to bring astronauts and remotely located patients on ground quality ultrasound

  • Robots in space into the 21st century.
    Ind. Rob. Pub Date : 1997-01-01
    C R Weisbin,D Lavery,G Rodriguez

    Describes the technological developments which are establishing the foundation for an exciting era of in situ exploration missions to planets, comets and asteroids with advanced robotic systems. Also outlines important concurrent terrestrial applications and spinoffs of the space robotics technology. These include high-precision robotic manipulators for microsurgical operations and dexterous arm control

    Purpose The purpose of this paper is to improve the positional accuracy, smoothness on motion and productivity of industrial robot through the proposed optimal joint trajectory planning method. Also a new improved algorithm, i.e. non-dominated sorting genetic algorithm-II (NSGA-II) with achievement scalarizing function (ASF) has been proposed to obtain better optimal results compared to previously

    Purpose This paper aims to propose a novel active SLAM framework to realize avoid obstacles and finish the autonomous navigation in indoor environment. Design/methodology/approach The improved fuzzy optimized Q-Learning (FOQL) algorithm is used to solve the avoidance obstacles problem of the robot in the environment. To reduce the motion deviation of the robot, fractional controller is designed. The
