Successful ophthalmic surgeries using intraocular untethered microrobots or tethered robotic microtools require methods to robustly track the microdevices in the posterior of the human eye. The dimensions and specularities of the microdevices are major obstacles for accurate tracking. In addition, the optical structure of the human eye makes it challenging(More)
Navigation is instrumental in the successful deployment of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs). Sensor hardware is installed on AUVs to support navigational accuracy. Sensors, however, may fail during deployment, thereby jeopardizing the mission. This work proposes a solution, based on an adaptive dynamic model, to accurately predict the navigation of the(More)
Magnetic resonance navigation (MRN) offers the potential for real-time steering of drug particles and cells to targets throughout the body. In this technique, the magnetic gradients of an MRI scanner perform image-based steering of magnetically-labelled therapeutics through the vasculature and into tumours. A major challenge of current techniques for MRN is(More)
Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) are required to carry out a mission with minimum supervision. Often, the AUV's hardware integrity is compromised amidst operation; thus, jeopardising the mission's success. Thruster failures, for example, may affect AUVs locomotion. Following a thruster failure, the plan may require changes to compensate, if possible,(More)
This paper presents a filtering algorithm for non-linear systems in the case of sensor degradation. The algorithm adapts the relative importance of the sensor measurements, compared to the model predictions, in real time; yielding a filter that is robust to noisy observations and sensor blackouts. The filter is constructed using a Variational Bayes(More)
Concentric tube robots comprise telescopic precurved elastic tubes. The robot's tip and shape are controlled via relative tube motions, i.e. tube rotations and translations. Non-linear interactions between the tubes, e.g. friction and torsion, as well as uncertainty in the physical properties of the tubes themselves, e.g. the Young's modulus, curvature, or(More)
OBJECTIVE Rigid endoscopes enable minimally invasive access to the ventricular system; however, the operative field is limited to the instrument tip, necessitating rotation of the entire instrument and causing consequent tissue compression while reaching around corners. Although flexible endoscopes offer tip steerability to address this limitation, they are(More)
