Current surgical robots had revolutionized the field of minimal invasive surgery for the last 15 years, but still they are lacking when it comes to artificial intelligence and computer cognition to give more support to the surgeon. Future robots are tackling these issues and aiming also to produce single port platforms, improving the haptic feedback and producing robots used through natural orifices (Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery—NOTES). In this chapter, an overview of coming surgical robotic systems is presented.
