OBJECTIVES New markers are described that can be used for an improved registration procedure and for the exact comparison of navigation systems. The advantages of the markers are demonstrated, together with an automated segmentation algorithm for locating the centroid of the markers in image space. Compared to manual registration, this method shows an(More)
For drive train efficiency estimation, loss models of the battery, an optional DC/DC converter, an inverter and the electrical machine are presented. Harmonic iron losses of the machine caused by current ripple are considered in order to evaluate various modulation strategies and switching frequencies of the inverter. Battery voltage optimizations are(More)
For drive train efficiency estimation, three-level inverters are analyzed regarding different modulation techniques and switching frequencies. In this paper an optimized operating mode selector is proposed to choose a loss optimal modulation technique and switching frequency for each operating point. Energy savings due to the operating mode selector are(More)
PURPOSE In many orthopedic surgeries, there is a demand for correctly placing medical instruments (e.g., K-wire or drill) to perform bone fracture repairs. The main challenge is the mental alignment of X-ray images acquired using a C-arm, the medical instruments, and the patient, which dramatically increases in complexity during pelvic surgeries. Current(More)
PURPOSE This work proposes a novel algorithm to register cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) volumes and 3D optical (RGBD) camera views. The co-registered real-time RGBD camera and CBCT imaging enable a novel augmented reality solution for orthopedic surgeries, which allows arbitrary views using digitally reconstructed radiographs overlaid on the(More)
