2000/2001 :

RNRT, VTHD Project

ChIR is in charge of the medical white board part and the supervision aspects in telesurgery. In this frame, a 2.5Gigabits network links the Hopital Europen Georges Pompidou, Paris and the lab at Sophia-Antipolis.

2001/2002 :

RNTS, EndoXirob Project

In the frame of the development of a teleoperated robot in laparoscopic surgery (2 years), ChIR addresses the problem of the haptic simulation with constrained motions and the haptically augmented reality.

1999-2002 :

``Téléchirurgie'' Project

The ChIR team is prime of the ``Téléchirurgie'' project composed of computer science groups (Epidaure, Prisme, Robotvis at Inria Sophia), medical (Alain Carpentier at Hôpital Européen Georges Pompidou) and industrial (General Electric Medical System) teams.

2001-2004 :

Industrial partnership with General Electric Medical Systems on the 4D modeling of coronary arteries.
