The DLR MIRO is the second generation of versatile robot arms for surgical applications, developed at the Institute for
Robotics and Mechatronics at Deutsche Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR) in Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany.
With its low weight of 10 kg and dimensions similar to those of the human arm, the MIRO robot can assist the surgeon
directly at the operating table where space is scarce. The planned scope of applications of this robot arm ranges from
guiding a laser unit for the precise separation of bone tissue in orthopedics to positioning holes for bone screws, robot
assisted endoscope guidance and on to the multi-robot concept for endoscopic minimally invasive surgery.
A stereo-endoscope delivers two full HD video streams that can even be augmented with information, e.g vectors
indicating the forces that act on the surgical tool at any given moment. SeeFront's new autostereoscopic 3D display SF
2223, being a part of the MIRO assembly, will let the surgeon view the stereo video stream in excellent quality, in real
time and without the need for any viewing aids.
The presentation is meant to provide an insight into the principles at the basis of the SeeFront 3D technology and how
they allow the creation of autostereoscopic display solutions ranging from smallest "stamp-sized" displays to 30"
desktop versions, which all provide comfortable freedom of movement for the viewer along with excellent 3D image
