Global Metric Created For The Development of Agile Robots

The design and use of robots for reachability and dexterity during eye surgery have been specified by a collaborative study between academics from Moorfields Eye Hospital, University College London (UCL), and Kings College London (KCL). This is what is known as global metric created for the development of agile robots.

“While there has been no work on designing robots for dexterity, that is, for reaching a specific point but under every orientation possible, we already have good algorithms for the reachability of robots that explain how long, stiff, or bendy a robot should be to reach specific locations,” said Dr. Christos Bergeles. An application that specifies reachability and dexterity has been developed by researchers Dr. Christos Bergeles from the School of Biomedical Engineering & Imaging Sciences, Dr. Konrad Leibrandt, formerly at UCL, and Prof. Lyndon da Cruz from Moorfields Eye Hospital. They have developed a global metric that makes it possible to compare continuous robots in terms of numbers.

An application that specifies reachability and dexterity has been developed by researchers Dr. Christos Bergeles from the School of Biomedical Engineering & Imaging Sciences, Dr. Konrad Leibrandt, formerly at UCL, and Prof. Lyndon da Cruz from Moorfields Eye Hospital. They have developed a global metric that makes it possible to compare continuous robots in terms of numbers.

Bergeles is utilizing the methods outlined in a paper published last year, to develop micro-surgical robots that offer opportunities beyond conventional surgery. He aims to implement the design algorithms in robotics for eye surgery, under a new collaborative program from KCL, UCL and Moorfield.

“The developed systems will revitalize surgery by improving practice and patient outcomes, supporting the vision of sight restoration, and presenting evidence for the role of new smart instrumentation technologies in the operating room,” said Bergeles.
