Abstract

Simulation is becoming a standard means of surgicaltraining. This paper describes the development of the hapticelement of a simulation training system called Computer Assisted Surgical Trainer (CAST) III. Research is being done to showthat the combination of graphical and haptic guidance may bean effective technique in achieving optimal path enumerationin a three-dimensional space. The haptic feedback system usedin CAST III provides a tactile dimension of training. Theimplementation focuses on the design of a multi-axis controlsystem. This implementation provides an element of a fullspectrumnavigation system that trains users in optimal pathenumeration given a limited perceptual environment.
