Duration: 25 mins
Suchitta Misra
Distinguished R&D Leader, Stryker

The use of robotics has been increasingly growing in medical procedures, especially in robotic assisted surgery. These systems are highly complex, safety critical and having high reliability requirements. They have a need for real time 3D visualization, complex and computationally intensive algorithms and quick real time response for accurate and precise motion control. The choice of the programming language is of paramount importance to achieve these needs.

This talk revolves around the choice of programming language(s) for developing software for the medical robotic systems and what factors drive the decision. As the robot and its ecosystem expand to provide ease of use to the surgeon, how does the software evolve in terms of use of different languages/development environments to provide the different functionalities in an efficient and effective manner.
