Whitepaper: Applying DDS to Medical Robots for Minimally Invasive Microsurgery
Solving the Tough System Design Challenges of Throughput, Interoperability, Reliability, and Security
Medical professionals use robots for everything from surgery and rehabilitation to noninvasive general hospital and pharmacy applications. This trend shows no signs of slowing down. The medical robotics market has increased almost sevenfold since 2012 and the market is predicted to annual growth of over 20 percent through 2022, largely driven by medical robots for minimally invasive surgery, which represents roughly 70 percent of the market.
This whitepaper focuses on the design challenges for minimally invasive robotic surgery. Specifically:
Trends that are driving innovation in medical robotics, like data centricity, which diverges from traditional approaches.
The benefits of an open connectivity standard called Data Distribution Service (DDS) and how it is enabling developers to meet the complex and rigorous requirements of medical robotics
How RTI Connext DDS works to expedite time to market for these breakthrough medical machines while reducing development and maintenance costs. Use case with DLR MiroSurge is provided as an example.
