Create knowledge and foster innovation to further the field of robotics science and engineering.
Robotics are an essential link between computation and action that can improve the health, safety, and efficacy of humans. The Computer Integrated Surgery minor is for students interested in computer integrated surgery issues who are majoring in a variety of disciplines including biomedical engineering, computer science, computer engineering, electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering.
CLASSES YOU MIGHT TAKE
Computer Integrated Surgery
This course focuses on computer-based techniques, systems, and applications exploiting quantitative information from medical images and sensors to assist clinicians in all phases of treatment. It emphasizes the relationship between problem definition, computer-based technology, and clinical application and includes a number of guest lectures given by surgeons and other experts.
Learn the fundamental methods in computer vision from a computational perspective. You’ll study methods like camera systems and their modelling, computation of 3-D geometry from binocular stereo, motion, photometric stereo, object recognition, image segmentation, and activity analysis.
Algorithms for Sensor-Based Robotics
Using an algorithmic perspective, we’ll survey the development of robotic systems for navigating an environment. We’ll also cover basic kinematics, configuration space concepts, motion planning, and localization and mapping. You’ll study these concepts in the context of the ROS software system, and be exposed to examples relevant to mobile platforms, manipulation, robotics surgery, and human-machine systems.
