A simulation-based assessment system for computer assisted surgical trainer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

2 Scopus citations


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.
