We implemented the MULTIROBOTS-SURGERY platform as a collection of ROS* nodes. All the ROS nodes are connected to a central unit acting as ROS core, in charge of providing a common timestamp and driving the communication between nodes, and data recording module.
The figure shows the conceptual architecture of MULTIROBOTS-SURGERY platform in terms of ROS nodes.
*ROS is an open source, distributed, component-based development framework that has become the standard de facto for interfacing heterogeneous hardware and software in robotics applications.Read More
The SARAS Workshop “NEXT GENERATION INTELLIGENT SURGICAL SYSTEMS: Computer simulation meets robotics”, addressed to researchers representing SARAS’ two major fields of application: robotics and surgery, summarize the results of the project and presents the achievements obtained, including demonstrations, with the main objective of raising awareness of the project’s results (MS7).

Hamlyn Symposium: Sunday 23rd June 2019 08:30 – 15:30 SAPM04
The Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics (HSMR) provides an annual forum for surgeons and engineers from across the globe, to network and explore the latest developments in medical robotics.
The Symposium attracted over 500 delegates last year and now it ints 12th year, it has become a leading international conference on medical robotics, current clinical practice and emerging technologies in robotic surgery. One of our highlights this year will be a Clinical Leaders’ Forum, in which leading robotic surgeons in different fields of expertise, will come together to discuss the ways in which technologies can best be applied in clinical practice.
Highlights of the Symposium will include:
Dexterity and perception capabilities of surgical robots may soon be enhanced by cognitive functions that can support surgeons in decision making and performance monitoring, and enhance surgical quality.

However, the basic elements of autonomy are not well understood and their mutual interaction is unexplored.Read More
Next Generation Surgery: Seamless integration of Robotics, Machine Learning and Knowledge Representation within the operating rooms
ICRA 2019 – May 24, 2019 – Montreal, Canada
The use of surgical robots has -beyond doubt- led to advances and improvements in surgery. The next significant forward leap is expected with the introduction of intelligent systems that can operate autonomously, or semi-autonomously in cooperation with the surgeons. In this quest of intelligence, growing synergies from diverse scientific branches have emerged.Read More
In March 21st and 22nd surgeons and engineers will meet in Genoa to exchange experiences, ideas and discuss the future of surgical technologies. For the first time, the National Congress of the Italian Polispecialistic Society of Young Surgeons (SPIGC) will be completely merged with the Joint Workshop on Computer/Robot Assisted Surgery (CRAS) in a large event dedicated to ENCOURAGE YOUNG SURGEONS AND ENGINEERS.
CRAS+SPIGC 2019 will be a UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY for multi-cultural interactions, for identifying surgical needs and potential engineering solutions, and for the establishment of new multi-disciplinary collaborations. In addition, all research teams working on novel surgical technologies will have the opportunity to demonstrate their prototypes during the conference and enter the New Surgical Technologies Competition.
Research teams working on novel surgical technologies will have the opportunity to demonstrate their prototypes during the conference and enter the New Surgical Technologies Competition. The surgeon delegates will vote and decide the winner!
Read all details on the official event website.
In occasion of the 3rd, the 4th and 5th meetings held in January and February 2019 some progresses have been made at the Department of Computer Science in the University of Verona (Italy).
This is the expected result of the functioning of SARAS’ Arms with the new phantoms after one year project.
