A prototyping Station has been implemented for the prototype evaluation of robotic surgical instruments.
The purpose of this system is to evaluate the performance of different virtual prototypes of surgical instruments using a physical teleoperated system with virtual constraints.
The master station is based on a multi-finger haptic station and the salve site is based on a two-finger robot with three-axis force measurement.
The purpose of this page is to support the submission of publications related to this new method with experimental data, videos and pictures.
Download the computer-recorded data, in CSV ASCII format, of force and positions of the clinical experiments. Each file is named with the volunteer, prototype and trial numbers. Columns are: Time (milliseconds), Cartesian position of finger 1 (x,y,z), Cartesian Position of Finger 2 (x,y,z) , Force reading at finger 1 sensor(fx,fy,fz), Force reading at finger 2 sensor (fx,fy,fz), Virtual forces (feedback) of sensors in finger 1 (fx, fy, fz) and Virtual forces (feedback) of sensors in finger 2 (fx, fy, fz).

May the force (and the torque) be with you.
Thank-you very much, friends!
