Level of Autonomy for surgical robotics

Our new article has been published in the 2nd issue of the IEEE Trans. on Medical Robotics and Bionics: "Autonomy for Surgical Robots: Concepts and Paradigms". "Robot-assisted and computer-integrated surgery provides innovative, minimally invasive solutions to heal complex injuries and diseases. The dominant portion of these surgical interventions has been performed with master–slave teleoperation systems, which are not capable of autonomous task execution or cognitive decision making. Much of the most advanced tech-nologies foundered on the drawing boards or at the research labs for a long time, partially due to the fact that the surgical domain is resistant to the introduction of new hazards via the increased complexity of novel solutions. It has been seen with similar, heavily regulated areas that internationally accepted standards can facilitate the adoption of new technologies in a safe manner. This article reviews the existing autonomous capabilities …
