A novel approach toward construction of robots is based on a concentric combination of precurved elastic tubes. By rotation and extension of the tubes with respect to each other, their curvatures interact elastically to position and orient the robot's tip, as well as to control the robot's shape along its length. In this approach, the flexible tubes(More)
With the increasing popularity of robotic surgery, several studies in the literature have investigated automatically assessing skill measures based on motion and video data captured from these systems. A range of simulation environments for robotic surgery are now in development. Skill assessment in these environments has so far only focused on evaluating(More)

By rotating and extending the tubes with respect to each other, their curvatures interact elastically to position and orient the robot's tip, as well as to control the robot's shape along its length. Since these robots form slender curves, they are well(More)
