Object tracking is a key enabling technology in the context of computer-assisted medical interventions. Allowing the continuous localization of medical instruments and patient anatomy, it is a prerequisite for providing instrument guidance to subsurface anatomical structures. The only widely used technique that enables real-time tracking of small objects(More)
Neurosurgery was the first field of application for robots in interventional medicine 20 years ago, and since then dozens of research projects have been focusing on brain and spine surgery, differently addressing the challenges of accuracy and effectiveness. We have developed a cooperatively-controlled system to assist with skull base drilling, to improve(More)
The origins of telemedicine date back to the early 1970s, and combined with the concept of minimally invasive surgery, the idea of surgical robotics was born in the late 1980s based on the principle of providing active telepresence to surgeons. Many research projects were initiated, creating a set of instruments for endoscopic telesurgery, while visionary(More)
Service robotics is an emerging application area for human-centered technologies. The rise of household and personal assistance robots forecasts a human–robot collaborative society. One of the robotics community’s major task is to streamline development trends, work on the harmonization of taxonomies and ontologies, along with the standardization of terms,(More)

Image-guided surgical systems and surgical robots are primarily developed to provide patient benefits through increased precision and minimal invasiveness. Furthermore, robotic devices may allow for refined surgical treatment that is not feasible by other means. The goal of my research was to develop new methods and algorithms to support image-guided(More)
Image-guided surgery offers great advantages to surgeons through the possibility to track tools in 3D space and to navigate based on the virtual model of the patient. In the case of robot-assisted procedures, both the inherent accuracy of the system components and the quality of the registration procedures are critical to provide high precision treatment(More)
Besides the motion control issues and problems arising in general robotic applications, control engineers frequently encounter difficulties in designing robotic surgery systems due to the complex environmental constraints present. One of the most challenging problems is caused by the unique behavior of soft tissues under manipulations such as grabbing,(More)
Rheological soft tissue models play an important role in designing control methods for modern teleoperation systems. In the meanwhile, these models are also essential for creating a realistic virtual environment for surgical training. The implementation of model-based control in teleoperation has been a frequently discussed topic in the past decades,(More)
