During the Anthro-Centric Multisensory Interface for Sensory Augmentation of Tele-Surgery ACMI-SATS project, the research team developed a testbed that allows for testing and evaluation of hypotheses related to tele-surgical robotic human centered surgeon interfaces, cognitive workload, efficiency and situation awareness. The ACMI-SATS testbed includes both physical surgical robotic capability and simulation environments to maximize the efficiency of system development. ACMISATS provides a human centered multisensory interface that allows one or more surgeons to collaborate one or more cases simultaneously, whether co-located or remotely distributed. We completed the testbed hardware and software and developed a set of ACMI-SATS augmentations for testing during out-year funding and future studies focused on development of optimal tele-surgical, tele-mentoring and remote operations technologies and methodologies for both military and civilian applications.
