ROB-UY 3404 Haptics and Telerobotics in Medicine

4 Credits
In this course, the theoretical bases and applications, of haptics technologies with a particular focus on medical applications (specifically surgical, and neurorehabilitative) are taught. Basic technological aspects, such as instrumentation, actuation, control and mechanisms, are introduced. Also, some theoretical aspects related to telerobotic systems are discussed. Students are expected to have basic knowledge of programming. As part of this course, students will participate in experimental and simulation labs to acquire hands-on expertise in haptics implementation and programming.

Prerequisite(s): (CS-UY 1114  or CS-UY 1113 ) and MA-UY 2034  and PH-UY 1013  or equivalents (see Minor in Robotics)
Weekly Lecture Hours: 4
