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

Parallel Helix Actuators for Soft Robotic Applications

Multi-chamber soft pneumatic actuators are useful for many applications, including medical and surgical robotic devices. However, existing methods used for their manufacture often require multiple manual steps, leading to reduced

Fundamentals of the gut for capsule engineers

A literature review on the Gastrointestinal tract has just been published by the STORM Lab UK in Progress of Biomedical Engineering. The inspection of the GI tract is fundamental for
