Transcript of The Da Vinci Robot

Where is the robot used? what is its work envelope (how many degrees of freedom or flexible joints does it have?) What task does the robot perform? What human function or task does this robot simulate? Some advantages of using this robot to perform surgeries is that it uses a lot of precision and can be more precise that doctors can be, and instead of doctors cutting your chest open to perform heart surgery, the Da Vinci just makes a few small incisions, which also makes recovery faster. Some disadvantages of using the Da Vinci to perform surgery is that the robot can fail or make mistakes so the doctors have to be ready at a moments notice to take over the surgery. Is the robotic end effector multi-functional? If so, what other tasks can it preform? How is the robot taught to perform its task? What sensors does the robot have and how does the robot use these sensors? By: Nisha Nirmal and Karin Shibata The Da Vinci Robot Name some advantages and disadvantages of using a robot to complete this task. Describe the impact that this robot has had or could have on its intended audience. This robot could have a very successful impact or a bad impact on its audience.This is because if the robot does surgeries all the time and has very little to no mistakes while performing then, more people would like to have surgeries performed by the Da Vinci robot, but if the robot starts to make mistakes often,people will most likely not want to have surgeries performed by the robot. What type of jobs/careers can this robot create to provide employment for people? The robot is used mainly in hospitals in Canada and Europe. It's work envelope is that it has two joints on every one of its 4 arms, so that it can work precisely when performing surgeries. The human function that the Da Vinci robot simulates is performing surgeries by a doctor sitting at the controls of the robot where there is a camera so the doctor can see what he or she is doing. The Da Vinci robot can perform many different types of surgeries such as heart surgery, colorectal cancer, throat cancer, prostate cancer, and many more. The robot is taught to perform the task of performing surgeries by a doctor sitting at controls at the Da Vinci robot where there is a camera, so the doctor can see where to make the robot make incisions and where to fix things. No, the robot is not multi-functional because it is made to just perform surgeries. Predict and explain how this robot may be altered to preform more or different tasks in the future. This robot can create more jobs for manufacturers who maake robots, because if more people want to have surgeries performed by the Da Vinci, the manufacturers will have to make more, therefore creating more jobs. This robot may be altered to perform more/different types of surgeries in the future so that more people will be able to use the Da Vinci for their surgeries. It can also have more sensors such as heat sensors so that the Da Vinci can sense weather the body that it is operating on is getting too hot. The Da Vinci robot has a custom torque sensor, which measures joint torques directly, and has a current sense resistor to measure applied motor torque on each of the four surgical tool joints.
