Medical robots are increasingly supporting the surgeon's work and making operations safer and less straining on patients.
An interactive haptic robotics platform for minimal invasive surgery utilizes tactile-guided robotics and patient-specific visualization. It enables orthopedic surgeons to treat knee disease with consistently reproducible precision.
A tele-robotics surgical system with tactile sensing capabilities controls the quick insertion and replacement of surgical instruments independent from the patient's positioning on the operation table. Simultaneous use of up to five of its robotic arms, operated by one or two surgeons can be controlled.
A standard 3U CompactPCI embedded single-board computer based on Intel Core technology controls both applications.It is equipped with all state-of-the-art PC interfaces and comes with the complete application software stored in the on-board memory.
Standard Components Used in this Example
The F23P is an x86 PC based embedded computer for industrial automation and railway transportation, featuring the 4th generation Haswell Intel Core family up to the i7-4700EQ processor. The SBC is compliant with the PICMG 2.30 standard and as such a perfect migration path from CompactPCI to CompactPCI Serial.
