Abstract

This paper describes a haptic guidance system developed to assist in model-based training of minimally invasive, laparoscopic procedures. The key factor motivating the development of the device called CAST (Computer-Assisted Surgical Trainer) is the need to advance the state-of-the-art in teaching laparoscopy, and ultimately to improve surgical outcomes. In the paper, CAST'S exchangeable task scenario and fuzzy logic controller with reference generator are presented. The system, while currently intended for off-line, laboratory use, has an excellent potential for real-time, assistive functions in the operating room.
