A multimodal training platform for minimally invasive robotic surgery

Rainer Konietschke, Andreas Tobergte, Carsten Preusche, Paolo Tripicchio, Emanuele Ruffaldi, Sabine Webel, Ulrich Bockholt
2010 19th International Symposium in Robot and Human Interactive Communication  
The training platform shares the same surgical operator workstation as MiroSurge and simulates the behaviour of the telemanipulator arms and the surgical instruments.  ...  However instead of the real telemanipulator itself, a virtual environment with abstracted tasks is connected to the operator workstation.  ...  virtual reality simulation (see Fig. 2 ).  ...
