WP4 - RASimAs Components
WP 4 is defined to develop the RASim and the RAAs system. Based on the user needs and specifications, the RAAs system specifications and requirements have been defined. In comprehensive interaction of software developers and clinician, all specifications will be classified into "critical" and "desirable". The thus agreed set of specifications needs to be transferred into functional requirements and software design. The design choices and consequences thereof will be communicated to all medical partners of the Consortium, preferably in a joint meeting which results in a thoroughly discussed and agreed final design. The interactive virtual reality (VR)-based training simulator will offer both types of techniques for locating the desired nerve: electrical stimulation and ultrasound-guidance. The algorithms in the tasks related to the RAsim system will be implemented or interfaced to the Open Source H3D software, which will be the foundation for the RASim prototypes in WP5.
