Towards the development of safe, collaborative robotic freehand ultrasound

The use of robotics in medicine is of growing importance for modern health services, as robotic systems have the capacity to improve upon human tasks, thereby enhancing the treatment ability of a healthcare provider. In the medical sector, ultrasound …

Ph.D. Defence: Officially Dr Nick

It has been quite the adventure, but my academic journey has (for now) come to an end. On December 18th 2019, I successfully defended by Ph.D. thesis, Towards the development of safe, collaborative robotic freehand ultrasound, at École de technologie supérieure.

Evolutionary Motion Control Optimization in Physical Human-Robot Interaction

Given that the success of an interaction task depends on the capability of the robot system to handle physical contact with its environment, pure motion control is often insufficient. This is especially true in the context of medical freehand …
