Medical Robotics: Continuum Robots and Sensing
Dr. Anzhu Gao received the bachelor’s and master’s degrees in mechatronics engineering from the State Key Laboratory of Robotics and System, Harbin Institute of Technology, Harbin, China, in 2009, 2011, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in mechatronics engineering from the Shenyang Institute of Automation, the State Key Laboratory of Robotics, Shenyang, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Shenyang, China, and also the University of Chinese Academy of Science, Beijing, China, in 2017.
From 2014 to 2015, he was a Visiting Student with the Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics, Johns Hopkins University, USA. He was an Engineer in a company in Shanghai from 2011 to 2013 and a Research Associate with the Hamlyn Center for Robotic Surgery, Department of Computing, Imperial College London, U.K., from 2017 to 2019. He is currently an Assistant Professor with the Institute of Medical Robotics and the Department of Automation, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China. His research interests include medical robots, continuum robots, soft robots, medical sensors, etc.
Medical robotics have introduced a variety of benefits to assist the surgeons in achieving minimally invasive surgery. Continuum robotics is one of the most popular research topics. It can help go into natural orifices and reach the targets in confined anatomical space. In this lecture, I will introduce the background and challenges of medical robotics, which mainly focus on continuum robots and sensing.
