Significant advances have been made in surgical assistance robots, but significant challenges remain.
This project will develop new systems for surgical assistance robots, including the potential for advanced surgical localization and positioning systems.
This project is part of a major Australian Research Council Industrial Transformation Training Centre for Joint Biomechanics.
Research activities will include:
- writing academic research papers for submission to top tier academic conferences and journals
- preparing and giving high quality research presentations
- collaboration with fellow students, postdocs and academics
- potential collaboration with top international universities and major international companies working in this space.
Some of the primary outcomes include:
- new surgical robots
- new positioning systems for use in surgery
- new technology
- commercialization outcomes
