Abstract

This report is the result of an internship at the Engineering Research Center for Computer Integrated Surgical Systems and Technology at the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. The internship has been completed in the fall of 2012 as a part of the Graduate Program in Mechanical Engineering (special-ization Dynamical System Design, chair Control Systems Technology) at Technische Universiteit Eindhoven, This report is the result of an internship at the Engineering Research Center for Computer Integrated Surgical Systems and Technology at the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. The internship has been completed in the fall of 2012 as a part of the Graduate Program in Mechanical Engineering (specialization Dynamical System Design, chair Control Systems Technology) at Technische Universiteit Eindhoven, The Netherlands. The author would like to express his gratitude for the given opportunity. The support of faculty and students at the Johns Hopkins University has substantially contributed to the contents of this report. In this research, the robot designed for eye surgery at the Johns Hopkins University is investigated. The present control of the robot is analyzed and improved. Further, a comparison between the desired and actual performance is made. The hands-on approach is analyzed and the connection between the robot's movements and the input of the force sensor is quantied. The Netherlands.
