    Abstract

    Proper haptic feedback is a key aspect to the safety of a teleoperated endoscopic surgical robotics system. In this study we developed a flexible sensing module to measure the directional force, and a haptic control of a soft robotic endoscopic segment. The force amplitude and direction detection was based on the voltage changes in four strain gauges positioned at four quarters of a flexible cylinder. The flexible structure of the cylinder allowed for large deformation which can reduce the risk of tissue damage at interfaces. Inverse finite element analysis and finite element simulations were implemented to further improve and verify the developed system. The system including the haptic feedback controller could enhance operator navigation.
