Suturing is an important yet time-consuming part of surgery. A fast and robust autonomous procedure could reduce surgeon fatigue, and shorten operation times. It could also be of particular importance for suturing in remote tele-surgery settings where latency can complicate the master-slave mode control that is the current practice for robotic surgery with systems like the da Vinci®. We study the applicability of the trajectory transfer algorithm proposed in [12] to the automation of suturing… Expand
Online Trajectory Planning and Force Control for Automation of Surgical Tasks
TLDR
This paper proposes a framework for learning both spatial motion and force profile from human experts that can plan and update task trajectories in real time and robustly control the contact force under dynamic conditions. Expand
Unifying scene registration and trajectory optimization for learning from demonstrations with application to manipulation of deformable objects
TLDR
An algorithm is proposed that considers this effective final warp as the criterion to optimize for in a unified optimization that simultaneously considers the scene-to-scene warping and the robot trajectory (which were separated into two sequential steps by the past work). Expand
Trajectory planning under different initial conditions for surgical task automation by learning from demonstration
TLDR

Dynamic Motion Planning for Autonomous Assistive Surgical Robots
TLDR

Automating multi-throw multilateral surgical suturing with a mechanical needle guide and sequential convex optimization
TLDR
Initial results suggest that the dVRK can perform suturing at 30% of human speed while completing 86% suture throws attempted, and the Suture Needle Angular Positioner (SNAP) results in a 3x error reduction in the needle pose estimate in comparison with the standard actuator. Expand
