Abstract
This paper describes experiments with a voice-controlled robot system to be used in endoscopic neurosurgery. The robot was a modified version of the robot described in previous publications of the group at Fraunhofer IPA and HSK. To control the robot a voice-controlled user interface was developed. The experiments were conducted on cadavers for three standard approaches in neuroendoscopy. The goal was to gain experience with a voice-controlled user interface and also with the set-up and use of the robotic system under clinical conditions. The results indicate that modifications to the robot and user interface are necessary. However the overall feasibility of the application was demonstrated.
