 When targeting in surgery, accuracy is sine qua non. Although the initial position of the anatomical target is typically known from pre-operative images, accurate targeting is very challenging as inserting a needle displaces the tissue and moves the target. This project aims to address this challenge by integrating fast non-linear biomechanical models that predict tissue motion with accurate and fast motion control. It brings together methods of computational biomechanics,​ computer-assisted surgery, and robotics to create new methods for surgical robots that will predict the target motion and guide a needle to accurately intersect the target. When targeting in surgery, accuracy is sine qua non.
