Surrogate Robotic Arm System
Our client is a world leader in surgical tools, engaged in developing a new suite of robotic instruments for a state-of-the-art robotic system.
We were tasked to develop and build a “surrogate” robotic arm system, which allows our client to quantify the performance of new instruments comprehensively in a pre-clinical environment. The instruments were tested with the robotic arm to evaluate their technical performance and usability preferences.
Key data and technical details
- Integration of off-the-shelf (OTS) robotic arm and hand-held wireless controllers
- Lag-free real time control of surgical tool through the UI
- Iterative and closed form inverse kinematics algorithms of the tool and manipulator
- Core algorithm and GUI developed in visual C++
- Portable system, easy and quick to setup
- Integration of safety features, enabling the system to work in proximity of humans
