The STORM Lab team are presenting three works at the 2019 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA), May 20-24. The three papers investigated different control strategies for the Magnetic Flexible Endoscope (MFE), aimed to enhance the performance of the platform. In particular, Model Predictive Control (Bruno), Magnetic Levitation (Giovanni and Lavinia), Autonomous Navigation (James).

James’ “Autonomous Navigation of a Magnetic Flexible Endoscope” was award winner for the poster session of the “Workshop on Next Generation Surgery”.

The articles on Magnetic Levitation and Model Predictive Control were published by Robotics and Automation Letters and will be available within the publications section of the website.
