ALTAIR research projects



Intelligent SURgical Robot


From 2011-04
To 2014-08


I-SUR Project develops general methods for cognitive surgical robots capable of combining sensing, dexterity and cognitive capabilities to carry out autonomously simple surgical actions, such as puncturing, cutting and suturing.

Robotic surgery is now a standard for many surgical procedures and we are looking at what will be ronotic surgery in ten years from now.

I-SUR addresses issues that will be important in the future of robotic surgery, as how we can automatize certain parts of procedures done with the robot.
