The work presented in this paper is focused on movement recognition as a first step to achieve the automation of a two-arm-surgical-robotic-system in the laparoscopic surgery environment. In order to accomplish coordination between the surgeon and the robotic assistant, a system able to recognize and differentiate between certain standard maneuvers should be developed. The new user interface is based on this maneuvers recognition system, which models the surgeon behavior. This interface… CONTINUE READING
