MRI guided minimally noninvasive therapy has gained more and more acceptance in recent years. This paper designs a kind of MRI guided robot with pneumatic cylinder as driver, which is MR compatible, and mainly elaborates on the most difficult pneumatic control algorithm. We adopt a control algorithm based on fuzzy logic. The experiment shows that the proposed algorithm has good accuracy and dynamic characteristics.
