From Visual to Haptic: How do Laparoscopy Experts Estimate Haptics from Visual Cues in Robotic Surgery

Lead Research Organisation: Heriot-Watt University
Department Name: S of Mathematical and Computer Sciences


To investigate whether there is a skill of transformation of visual feedback to haptic information in robotic surgery, to find out the best modality feedback to acquire such skill, to investigate the visual features that are used with such skill to estimate object stiffness.
