Abstract

Lack of force feedback and need for dexterous hand movement makes mastering the da Vinci® Surgical System (DVSS) a challenging task. As a solution, we present our Robotic Surgical simulator (RoSS) system as a means of training for DVSS. In this research, we have developed a two handed 6 DOF virtual reality trainer for acquiring basic skill sets that are needed to perform surgery successfully using DVSS. In this paper we discuss the mapping between RoSS and DVSS master's and the preliminary skill training modules.
