Robotically-Assisted Surgical Systems

Medical robots are being increasingly utilized for surgical procedures, diagnostics, image-guided interventions and drug delivery. Robotically-assisted devices are helping clinicians safely perform delicate, complex procedures with accuracy, flexibility and reliability. Patients recover faster, with less pain, and fewer complications.

RTI is partnering with the leading medical robotics companies to deliver next-generation systems that integrate:

  • Advanced robotics, sensors and instrumentation
  • Visualization, AI, AR/VR integration
  • Surgical autonomy
  • Remote surgery and monitoring
  • Data fusion, analytics and integration across devices and ecosystems

RTI Connext is Solving the Design Challenges of Robotically-Assisted Systems

Robotically-assisted surgical systems are increasingly incorporating a convergence of intelligent technologies and systems to improve patient outcomes, surgical/care efficiency, and device operation across a broad array of clinical procedures.

To fully leverage new and enabling technologies, data connectivity requirements, and clinical user needs, robotically-assisted systems need to be designed with flexible and interoperable architectures that allow for rapid and efficient device evolution, while also addressing demanding and simultaneous requirements for reliability, cybersecurity and performance.

RTI Connext is the distributed and real-time software connectivity framework that addresses the flexible and demanding compute needs of robotically-assisted systems from the edge to the cloud.
