Introduction to medical robotics and

Challenges in control of surgical robot systems

Humanity has been desiring for healthy and long life, and this motivated the development in medicine from ancient diagnosis to modern robotic surgery. This lecture introduces history of medicine as well as the modern trends in surgical robotics in various surgical field. KAIST has been developing medical robots in laparoscopic, endoscopic, and microscopic surgical fields, and the journey of our medical robot research is introduced as well.

Teleoperated surgical robot system enables surgeon to perform complex surgical tasks in remote environments. How the surgeon feels the remote surgical environment in a teleoperated system is important, and to deal with this problem, consideration on both transparency and stability issue is necessary. In addition, in order to achieve accurate and stable control of surgical robot, the effect of friction, gravity, vibration and hysteresis on robot manipulator should be compensated. This lecture introduces fundamental concept of transparency and stability issues in teleoperation. Representative compensation approaches for friction, gravity, vibration, and hysteresis are presented as well.
