Paper Abstract

We have developed a bilateral controlled remote micro-manipulator system for medical application. By operating this system an opretor can perceive the stiffness of small part of tissue with his/her tactile sense and the visco-elastic parameters of the tissue are identified from the measerments of the displacement and the reaction force on the slave manipulator. Firstly the relation between the tactile sense and the identified viscoelastic parameters is experimentally obtained. And then using this relation a method which evaluates the stiffness of the tissue by means of the fuzzy reasoning is proposed.
