This project aims to develop a vision-based robotic surgical assistant for minimally invasive orthopedic procedures. The system would be composed of a robotic arm with an attached camera-arthroscope bundle for intra-articular navigation. The system will be capable of a) localizing instruments robustly and reliably inside the human joints; b) generating dense and accurate 3D reconstructed models of the knee joint from intra-articular images; and c) semi-autonomously navigating the camera (via visual servoing) to follow the surgeons’ tools.
