A great new palpation tool from UC Berkeley

 At our ICRA15 workshop (reported in the last post) we organized a poster competition, where the two runner-ups were:
  • "Eye Gaze Tracking System for the da Vinci Research Kit";    Irene Tong , Omid Mohareri , Samuel Tatasurya , Craig Hennessey , Septimiu Salcudean
  • "Simulink to C++ Interface for Controller Development on the da Vinci Research Kit (dVRK)"; Angelica Ruszkowski, Zhan Fan Quek, Allison Okamura, and Septimiu Salcudean
The team built a Disposable Haptic Palpation Probe for Locating Subcutaneous Blood Vessels in Robot-Assisted Minimally Invasive Surgery. The best part is that you can also get your copy of it, as a part of their dedication to the DVRK community!
