Robotized peg-in-hole task involving the needle-like and pill-like objects with tight tolerances

B. Borovac, L. Nagy, E. Begovi, M. Nikoli, A. Popadi, D. Andri
Proceedings 2001 ICRA. IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (Cat. No.01CH37164)  
Handling and assembly of the needle-like and pill-like objects is a delicate task, particularly if tight clearances are involved.  ...  In case of the pill-like object we constructed a special device for parallel grasping, to decouple the sensor cells for sensing forces in the grasping phase from those involved in the assembly itself.  ...  Conclusion We described a procedure for performing the "peg-inhole" task involving two quite different types of objects (needle-like and pill-like), with tight clearances.  ...

Results: We performed laparoscopic surgery in 23 patients with adnexal disease. The mean age was 45 years (range 18-74 years), 35% were postmenopausal and 17% had previous abdominal surgery.  ...  Laparoscopy is increasingly considered the gold standard in the management of adnexal masses. This approach has been progressively evaluated in new and uncommon indications.  ...  needle like offenders agents.  ...

Attempts have been made to access the small intestines with wireless capsule endoscopes (WCE). These pill-sized cameras take pictures of the intestinal wall and then relay them back for evaluation.  ...  A review of actuators is presented, in the context of WCE, with a view to evaluate their acceptability in adding functionality to current WCEs.  ...  Figure 5 .14, a) shows the needle funnel fitted with the needle and spring. Figure 5 .14, b) shows the needle cam mounted in the needle funnel and engaged with the needle's drive peg.  ...
