Abstract

An assessment system is presented to provide objective assessment results for laparoscopic surgery skills training. Six innovative evaluation metrics are introduced in the design of the proposed system. Like a video game, the system suggests achievable goals that are used to define evaluation metrics for a trainee who is performing a particular training task. To implement the proposed system, a design method of the hierarchical fuzzy system is used. The simulation results and the prototype illustrate the feasibility of the proposed evaluation approach.
