This paper describes the safety features of the ROBODOC Surgical Assistant System, an image-driven robotic system which has been used to perform Total Hip Replacement surgery. These features include a dedicated processor for continuous monitoring of system status, shared data areas (dual-ported RAM), and external sensors (force-torque sensor, redundant positional encoders, and bone motion monitor).
