  author={Jelizaveta Konstantinova and Allen Jiang and Kaspar Althoefer and Prokar Dasgupta and Thrishantha Nanayakkara},
  journal={IEEE Sensors Journal},
Robot-assisted minimally invasive surgery (RMIS) made it possible to perform a number of medical manipulations with reduced patient trauma and better accuracy. Various devices, including tactile sensors, have been developed in recent years to enhance the quality of this procedure. The objective of this paper is to review the latest advancements and challenges in the development of tactile sensing devices designed for surgical applications. In particular, the focus is on palpation and probing… CONTINUE READING
