Telepresence and Teleaction System for Robot Assisted Dentistry
Duration for Initial Appointment
In the recent times, telepresence and teleaction (TPTA) systems have gained a lot of attention in the research community because of their many applications in various fields. TPTA systems allow a user to be present and active in a remote environment. Telemedicine (i.e., telediagnostics as well as tele-surgery) is one of its main applications.
This project focusses on employing TPTA system for robot assisted dentistry. The goal of the project is to treat/diagnose a patient by a distance. The experimental setup will involve a high-end robotic arm, 6- DoF force feedback haptic interface and various kinds of sensors. The doctor will be controlling the robot and getting a sense of touch feedback through a haptic interface.
In the proposed TPTA system, all-three modalities (audiohaptic-visuo) will be transmitted to the operator (doctor) in real time for efficient interaction between the operator and teleoperator.
The selected candidate is expected to implement/design haptic data reduction algorithms along with stability control schemes for efficient implementation of the teledentistry system and perform other tasks for the successful completion of the project.
- B.E./ B. Tech with specialization in Electrical Engineering/ Electronics Engineering/ Electronics & Communication/ Mechanical Engineering/Aerospace engineering/ Computer Science or equivalent with first class or equivalent.
