Abstract

The minimal invasive surgery is commonly used in clinical practice. The advantages such as less complication rate or shorter recovery time are unquestionable. But the lack of direct touch feedback and a narrow field of view makes this approach difficult for the surgeon to apply. To make the procedure easier, supportive systems are being build. One of the above is the camera control system constructed on the basis of the data from position sensors and an endoscope manipulating robot. Implemented features like speed adjustment or hysteresis ensure intuitive usage. The time necessary for the successful completion of the surgeon's training tasks with an accuracy of +/-10 mm decreased. Users gave positive feedback concerning the operation of the system.
