Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR CONTROLLING TOOL WITH ARTICULATABLE DISTAL PORTION
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS DE COMMANDE D'OUTIL AVEC PARTIE DISTALE POUVANT ÊTRE ARTICULÉÉ
Abstract:
(EN) A system comprises a medical tool including a shaft having proximal and distal ends and an articulatable distal portion coupled to the distal end of the shaft. The system also comprises a processing unit including one or more processors. The processing unit is configured to determine a target in a medical environment. The articulatable distal portion is directed toward the target. The processing unit is also configured to determine a motion of at least a portion of the shaft, and in response to the determined motion, control a pose of the articulatable distal portion so that the articulatable distal portion remains directed toward the target.
(FR) Système comprenant un outil médical comprenant un arbre ayant des extrémités proximale et distale et une partie distale pouvant être articulée couplée à l'extrémité distale de l'arbre. Le système comprend également une unité de traitement comprenant un ou plusieurs processeurs. L'unité de traitement est configurée pour déterminer une cible dans un environnement médical. La partie distale pouvant être articulée est dirigée vers la cible. L'unité de traitement est également configurée pour déterminer un mouvement d'au moins une partie de l'arbre, et, en réponse au mouvement déterminé, commander une pose de la partie distale pouvant être articulée de telle sorte que la partie distale pouvant être articulée reste dirigée vers la cible.
