    Abstract: Robot supported minimally invasive interventions are state of the art in operating theatres. To increase the accuracy of surgical instrument positioning, high-precision motion tracking systems are required. The miniaturization of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) facilitates the placing of orientation detection sensors close to the mounting of ... Show More
