GPS Like Systems for Flexible Medical Robots.

Spread the Knowledge.

Today’s world is known as the world of technology. In this modern age, all areas have changed a lot with the help of technology, technology has given a new way of life to human beings, and technology has made human life much easier. Engineers are constantly contributing to different fields to make human life easier and happier. The field is one of the most important fields in this field Isomorphous have been changed. These radical changes have been made possible by technology, various sophisticated equipment and technology have made a lot possible.

There is a growing need for state-of-the-art equipment for operations in the medical field. Engineers have developed a new technology to solve such a problem. This technology works like GPS. Tania Morimoto, a mechanical engineering professor, and Connor Watson is a Ph.D. student at the Jacob School of Engineering at UC San Diego developed this technology
Morimoto believes that continuum medical robots can work very well in a constrained environment, They are very safe and easy to use than rigid tools. But after entering the body, it is very difficult to track their location and know their shape. And if we can track their location, it will be very important for the doctor and the patient. A magnet embedded in the tip of the robot can be used in delicate places in the body, such as Sinoatrial node and Atrioventricular Node in the heart. We are working with a growing robot, which are robots made of very thin nylon that we invert, almost like a sock, and pressurize with a fluid which causes the robot to grow,” Watson said.
As GPS RECEIVER trace the location of the smartphone and determine where the smartphone is located. Similarly, researchers used existing magnet localization methods that work like GPS, with a computer system that detects the location of the robot. In this system, four sensors are spaced around the area where the magnetic field strength is to be measured. Researchers know the amount of magnetic field required around the robot embedded with the magnet. Based on the intensity and strength of the magnetic field, researchers get to know the exact location of the robot. The system consists of a robot, magnets, and magnet localization system total costs $100.
With further Neural Network Analysis, Morimoto and Watson get to know how sensors respond and what should be the response of the sensor to the location of the robot. This analysis helps to increase the accuracy of the locations of the tip of the robot.
