The RAVEN Surgical Robotic System

CITRIS researchers have been given full access to the interfaces of the Raven Surgical Tele-Operation System which was designed, fabricated, and interfaced by Prof. Jacob Rosen at UCSC with Blake Hannaford at University of Washington. The researchers will apply statistical robot learning to acquire control policies based on example trajectories provided by human experts. A paper by team leaders Professors Pieter Abbeel and Kenneth Goldberg on the preliminary results won the Best Medical Robotics Paper at the prestigious IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation. Working with Doug Boyd from UC Davis, a world-class surgeon, they will implement a system and perform a series of experiments to establish significant proof of concept results for supervised tele-surgery.

That Looks Way Too Much Like A Ball: Peeling A Grape With The Prostate Surgical Robot

peeling-a-grape.jpg

This is a video of a surgeon peeling a grape with the Da Vinci surgical robot to raise awareness for prostate cancer and help calm patient’s nerves about the precision of the technology. Unfortunately, the doctor actually stabs the grape a couple times, which, while watching the video, I was pretending was one of my balls. That’s probably why I passed out. That and the constant snipping sound. That is definitely one sound I definitely don’t ever want to hear down there. That and chains rattling.

Hit the jump and try to not think about your balls, I dare you. You will fail.

Surgical Robot Folds Tiny Paper Airplane


You might have heard of the da Vinci surgical robot — it’s the state-of-the-art system used by surgeons to operate remotely, and although it’s quite a bulky setup, it’s also nearly as precise as human hands. Seattle surgeon Jim Porter, in order to show off the da Vinci’s capabilities, folds a paper airplane using the system’s little grippers.

Then there’s a little twist at the end that took me by surprise. Let’s just say that the piece of paper isn’t exactly 8.5×11″.

Sofie surgical robot gives haptic feedback for a more

Surgical procedures assisted by robots are nothing new — they can be more precise and less invasive — and now it looks like a new upgrade could make them even better. The main drawback of a surgical robot is that the human surgeon performing the operation gets no tactile feedback, but that’s not the case with Sofie. Sofie, a joystick controlled robot gives haptic feedback to the surgeon by adjusting the resistance the controls give to indicate how much pressure is being exerted, surely a welcome addition to bots of this kind. This robot is also more compact than many earlier bots of this kind, and its creators are now looking to bring it into production, with a goal of it coming to the market in about five years.
