Robot-aided laparoscopy

CLARA robotic endoscope holder

Project CLARA has demonstrated recently the full capabilities of its robotic endoscope holder prototype. In this report by UnBTV, Mariana Bernardes explains the most important features of the device. Next steps include manufacturing and testing the new functional prototype.

Robotic-aided laparoscopy using serial manipulator

Demo of robot-aided laparoscopy using the Meka A2 compliant robotic arm. The setup includes a serial link manipulator integrated with an haptic interface using ROS. The video feedback is provided by a clinical endoscope.
