The use of Sensor-Actor Networks (SANETs) has been applied to surgical training contexts, to illustrate how the Spring Tensor Model (STEM) can be used for laparoscopic end-effector navigation through obstacles and high-risk areas. The modelling of agents as interactive components of a laparoscopic simulator seeks to emulate the physical environment as a virtualised representation in the integrated SANET infrastructure. Combining SANET middleware framework paradigms to a surgical knowledge-based construct demonstrates how SANETs can enhance medical practice. The architectural hybridisation of the training framework has enabled the adaptation of STEM modelling techniques for a simulated laparoscopic training methodology. The primary benefit of the architecture is that this integration strategy has resulted in a seamless transition of the heuristic framework to be applied to surgical training.
