    Abstract

    Background and study aims: We introduced a new platform for performing colonoscopy with robotic steering and automated lumen centralization (RS-ALC) and evaluated its technical feasibility. Conclusions: Colonoscopy with RS-ALC is technically feasible and appears to be easier and more intuitive than conventional steering for endoscopy-naive novices.
