Sensor-Actor Networks (Sanets) is adaptable for surgical simulation contexts, to illustrate how the Elastic Network Model can be used for laparoscopic end-effector navigation through vital organs and other obstacles. The active modeling of agents as interactive components of a unified laparoscopic simulator seeks to emulate the medical environment as a virtual representation in the coordinated Sanet infrastructure. The combination of Sanet middleware framework paradigms towards a surgical knowledge-based conception demonstrates how Sanets can help to enhance medical education. The hybrid architecture of the training equipment enables the adaptation of elastic modeling techniques for effective advances in laparoscopic training exercises. © 2013 IEEE.
