Transcript of Medical Robot

What task does the robot perform? What human Function or task does this robot simulate? The medical robot’s task is to finish a more precise medical surgery.

The human functions of a medical robot are the hand, The end effector, and the arms, manipulators ~Raise control arm to index.
~Open manipulator fingers to index.
~Turn motor shaft clockwise to index point.
~Turn motor shaft counter-clockwise
~Lower control arm until resistance is detected on manipulator 'down' switch.
~Close manipulator fingers until fingertip pressure detector detects resistance.
~Raise control arm.
~Turn motor shaft clockwise . Is the robot end efficient multi-functional? If so, what other tasks can it perform? Describe the impact that this robot has had or could have on its intended audience. What Sensors does the Robot have and how does the Robot Use These Sensors ? The medical robot has already impacted a few hospitalized surgeries. Later on in the future, These medical robots would be used more often and across the country. Medical Robot By: Maia Hall+Gabby Kim Where is the robot used? What is it’s work envelope (How many degrees of freedom or flexible joints does it have?) The medical robot is used in hospitals for surgical reasons. The medical robot is used in hospitals for surgical reasons. ~ Degrees of freedom : 6
~ Flexible Joints : 7 flexible joints ~The functions of a medical robot can be chosen through an interface operated by the end user.
~A handle can have buttons, One of the buttons allows the end user to control the chosen function. For example, when the wrist locking/unlocking is chosen.
~A handle used to control movement of a medical instrument can be attached to a robotic arm that is connected to a controller. Over all the medical robot is not a multi-functional. How is the Robot Taught to Perform its Task? Name some advantages and disadvantages of using a robot to complete a task. What type of jobs/careers can this robot create to provide employment for people? Works Cited The sensors the medical robot has are Proximity Sensors, Range Sensors, and Tactile Sensors. The robot uses the proximity sensors to find the presence of a human being in the work volume so that the accidents can be reduced. The range sensors are used to calculate the distance between the sensor and a work part. The tactile sensors are sensing devices that specifies the contact between an object. Advantages
~Good accuracy
~Does not get tired
~Protected from radiation
~Can process multiple sources of data

~Do not have good judgment
~Trouble adjusting to new situation
~Less hand-eye coordination
~Less dexterity
~Less sensing ability Predict and explain how this robot may be altered to perform more or difficult tasks in the future. The jobs that the medical robot create for people is training to do surgery robotically. doctors and nurses, that are undergoing training can be on standby. We predict that this robot may become a cheaper and more efficient for medical surgery. The medical robot would be able to complete surgery with precision. ~http://vgnuyikijm.weebly.com/all-about-medical-robots.html
