The use of magnetic fields to control and steer assistive and operative devices is increasing in minimally invasive surgical applications. The design of the magnetic link between an external permanent magnet, maneuvered by an industrial robot, and a robotic laparoscopic camera was investigated in this paper, with the objective to obtain accurate positioning and steering in visualization.
