i-Sur autonomous surgery
The i-Sur project, pictured, aims to give surgical robotics the cognitive abilities to perform surgical tasks automonously, but under the supervision of a human surgeon.
i-Sur has been designed to execute every task of a minor procedure. This includes understanding the surgeon's intentions, planning the operation and perfoming the operation. It will also detect potential problems and suggest solutions to the human surgeon via a control module.
