SCAN: System for Camera Autonomous Navigation in Robotic-Assisted Surgery
- Medicine2020 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS)
This work investigates the introduction of SCAN (System for Camera Autonomous Navigation) to overcome the limitation of direct control over both the surgical tools and the endoscope in robotic surgery.
Control of a Supernumerary Robotic Hand by Foot: An Experimental Study in Virtual Reality

The results suggest that a combination of practice and appropriate tasks can enhance the learning process for controlling a robotic hand by foot.
A Natural Language Interface for an Autonomous Camera Control System on the da Vinci Surgical Robot
- Computer ScienceRobotics
A voice interface to an autonomous camera system that can trigger behavioral changes and be more of a partner to the surgeon to enable more robust surgeries is developed, a step towards cooperative surgical robots that will effectively partner with human operators to enableMore robust surgeries.
Keeping surgeons in the loop: are handheld robotics the best path towards more autonomous actions? (A comparison of complete <InlineParagraph><Italic>vs</Italic>. </InlineParagraph>handheld robotic hepatectomy for colorectal liver metastases)
HR and CR liver resections have similar shortand long-term outcomes; however, when HR is used, over 90% of cases can be done MI compared to under 35% with CR; the added benefit of haptics and the ability for the operating surgeon to use hand assistance may account for this discrepancy.
Homography-based Visual Servoing with Remote Center of Motion for Semi-autonomous Robotic Endoscope Manipulation
- Medicine2021 International Symposium on Medical Robotics (ISMR)
A robotic controller that allows for image-based visual servoing that requires neither explicit tool and camera positions nor any explicit image depth information, and simultaneously respects a programmable Remote Center of Motion (RCM).

Robotic video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery using multiport triangular trocar configuration: initial experience at a single center
- MedicineJournal of Cardiothoracic Surgery
The method of r-VATS was found to be safe and effective and may be applied to different surgical operations and the utility and advantages of triangular trocar configuration for r- VATS require further refinement and research before it can be routinely adopted in clinical practice.
