AbstractTendon-sheath actuation mechanism is widely used in surgical robot, especially in endoscopic surgery, due to its capable of providing remote force and action transmission through long and flexible channel. However, hysteresis, backlash, nonlinear friction are the drawbacks of this mechanism. Our surgical robot use continuum manipulator which is useful in endoscopic surgery, due to its flexible and simple structure. Unlike other literatures that focus on tendon-sheath compensation only, the continuum manipulator is also taken into application level analysis. A model based feedforward motion compensation for tendon-sheath driven continuum manipulator is presented. The model is validated by using optical tracking system to trace the distal end position. Experiment result shows that the proposed model reduces the position error less than 5%.
