The Research Group Cognitive Medical Technologies (CoMeT)

The research group "Cognitive Medical Technologies (CoMeT)" is working on theoretical and practical problems in cognitive systems in medical technology. Focus is set on the research of new assisting functions for minimal invasive surgery in abdominal regions.

Concerning software research is done for preoperative (planning optimal ports) and intraoperativ assisting functions (autonomous visual servoing). But the surgeon will also be supported by advanced hardware; namely the development of tactile sensors and displays and better instruments with more degrees of freedom.
