One by one, Medical robots are crossing the chasm that lies between laboratory bench-top prototypes and commercial products. Next-generation surgical systems are now on the horizon and the research community is already contemplating fantastic new technologies that will extend computer-assisted surgery even further.
In this talk, we will take a step back together to look at the origins of the da Vinci telerobotic system, its present capabilities, and limitations; its acceptance, as well as new technologies on the horizon, and how we might see such platforms evolve in the future. I will talk from the perspective of a researcher embedded in industry and will share some of the challenges that we have experienced in taking research concepts and prototypes toward product.
Event starts: 5:00
