A surgical dataset from the da Vinci Research Kit for task automation and recognition

by   Irene Rivas-Blanco, et al.

The use of datasets is getting more relevance in surgical robotics since they can be used to recognise and automate tasks. Also, this allows to use common datasets to compare different algorithms and methods. The objective of this work is to provide a complete dataset of three common training surgical tasks that surgeons perform to improve their skills. For this purpose, 12 subjects teleoperated the da Vinci Research Kit to perform these tasks. The obtained dataset includes all the kinematics and dynamics information provided by the da Vinci robot (both master and slave side) together with the associated video from the camera. All the information has been carefully timestamped and provided in a readable csv format. A MATLAB interface integrated with ROS for using and replicating the data is also provided.
