Coupling robotics and medical simulation for automatic procedures – CONECT

Coupling robotics and medical simulation for automatic procedures.– CONECT”.

The objective of this project is to develop a robotic system, controlled by simulation, for inserting medical needles in the context of interventional radiology for the treatment of cancer. Regarding this work, the aspect of our research can be split into two parts.The first concerns the improvment of the calculations of the simulation time in order to transmit this information quickly enough to the simulated robotic system. The second concerns the coupling of robotics for addressing  problems such as the simulation accuracy and  the error estimation.

This project is funded by Labex funding to Dr Hadrien Courtecuisse in collaboration with Michel de Mathelin and Stéphane P. A. Bordas
