Viscoelastic modeling of human nasal tissues with a mobile measurement device
Modeling the dynamic of tool-tissue interaction for the robotic minimally invasive surgeries is one of the main issues for designing appropriate robot controllers. A mobile measurement device is produced in order to model ...
Design of a teleoperation scheme with a wearable master for minimally invasive surgery
Minimally invasive surgery is increasingly being preferred over conventional surgery, however many problems still persist in longer surgeries such as pituitary surgeries, where surgeons are still required to hold an endoscope ...
Experimental evaluation of actuation and sensing capabilities of a haptic device
Haptic devices are used to increase the telepresence level by providing the sense of touch to the human operator. Simultaneously, they capture the targeted motion of the human operator to generate a motion demand for the ...
Synthesis of scalable planar scissor linkages with anti-parallelogram loops
Scissor linkages are commonly used as mechanisms for scaling objects. They constitute a significant portion of deployable structures. Since 1960s many researchers sought to form novel structures using the scissor units. ...
A critical review of unpowered performance metrics of impedance-type haptic devices
A kinesthetic haptic device’s performance relies on unpowered, powered and controlled system characteristics. In this paper, a critical review is carried out for the well-known metrics for kinematics, stiffness and dynamic ...
