In this work, a haptic robotic device and its real-time virtual reality interface, deployed in an embedded computational platform is developed, in order to simulate soft tissue rendering contact forces and effects. A control scheme based on a bilateral tele-operation system is proposed recreating a multimodal interaction between the surgical trainer (operator) and the virtual robot (slave) in force-visual feedback environment. The virtual interaction object was modeled as a restriction in the haptic engine, it was implemented with an orthogonal decomposition of contact forces algorithm, generating two independent dynamics and recreated exponential deformation forces, like ones present during the manipulation of real organic tissue. The proposed model contains the biomechanical properties of a soft tissue (pork liver), characterized in an experimental compression test with an indenter.
