This Master’s level course is offered in English. The goals of this course is to familiarize students with the fundamentals of robotics and its applications to clinically-relevant scenarios.|
The pre-requisities of this course are:
- Control for (B)ME 201900089 (Master’s level course within Mechanical Engineering) or a comparable course.
- Basic knowledge of Linear Algebra
- Familiarity with MATLAB
This is a Master's Level course offered to Biomedical, Mechanical, and Electrical Engineering, and System & Control students. This course provides an introduction to robotics with emphasis on the mathematical tools for describing the kinematics and control of robotic manipulators. In addition, selected topics concerning modeling of soft biological tissues and haptics, are also discussed. In minimally invasive surgery, instruments should be manipulated and navigated remotely. Principles from robotics are used to describe this manipulation and navigation mathematically. The result of the operation should be observed and fed back to a surgeon. Although often the image of a video camera is sufficient, sometimes tactile information is needed about the mechanical properties of the tissue. There are haptic interfaces developed, which gives the surgeon 'the feeling' of the tissue remotely'. The technical background required for this, is being handled and applied in a lab/practical assignments.|
You can register for this course until (and including) November 8th 2020. Registration after that date it is not possible.
