Autonomy in SurgicalRobotics

Starting from the autonomotive field, the topic of autonomy in robotics has been largely debated by the research community. In particular, the last 20 years have seen the rise of

Closed-loop Control Approach for Soft Continuum Manipulators under Tip Follower Actuation in IJRR

Soft continuum manipulators, inspired by nature, facilitate motion within complex environments where traditional rigid robots may be ineffective. This has driven demand for new control schemes designed to precisely control

Guidelines for Robotic Flexible Endoscopy at the Time of COVID-19

In this paper, we review the state of flexible gastrointestinal endoscopy during COVID-19 and the significant changes that it has undergone over the last few months. One of the most

A Comparative Study of Spatio-Temporal U-Nets for Tissue Segmentation in Surgical Robotics

This paper compares the performance of three different neural network structures based on the U-Net for tissue segmentation. The models subject of this study comprise temporal layers such as Long

On the Observability and Observer Design on the Special Orthogonal Group Based on Partial Inertial Sensing

We recently demonstrated the feasibility in estimating the rotation of a rigid body (attitude), by the only mean of accelerometer and gyroscope. Find our paper on IEEE Transactions on Automatic

Enabling the future of colonoscopy with intelligent and autonomous magnetic manipulation

The magnetic flexible endoscope team have just published their latest work entitled ‘Enabling the future of colonoscopy with intelligent and autonomous magnetic manipulation’ – the culmination of 12 years of
