Abstract

In this paper a supervising system for robot application in surgery is described. Since a robot in surgery has to meet special safety requirements the robot application has to be controlled not only by the responsible surgeon but also by redundant sensors. Therefore our robot system for bone repositionings in craniofacial surgery is equipped with internal and external sensors. This paper discusses the use of an infrared navigation system and a force-torque-sensor as supervising sensors.
