Remote Surgical Robotics: Control Systems and Human-Machine Interfacing

Author: David Lin
Co-Author: Mr. Kirk Reinkens

This Real-World Engineering Project focuses on optimizing a prototype remote surgical robot which has force-feedback capabilities. The objective is to detect the surface of a gelatin brain by tactile perception through the robot. Students explore the tradeoff between sensitivity and range while considering human factors as design constrains.
