Jeffrey Berkley is the founder of Mimic Technologies, which was the first company to establish the market for robotic surgery simulation. He is well known as a leader in the fields of Haptics, surgery simulation, and real-time finite element modeling. He has published and served as a reviewer for various journals such as IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Modeling, Virtual Reality, and the Electronic Journal of Haptics Research and Medical Imaging. While obtaining his Masters of Science in Biomedical Engineering from Northwestern University, he also worked for Musculo Graphics, where he developed his first real-time finite element analysis models. He continued to advance his real-time algorithms while receiving his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Washington\\\'s Human Interface Technology Laboratory. He founded Mimic Technologies upon graduation, where he then applied his knowledge of haptic feedback and continuum mechanic-based tissue modeling to surgery simulation. He also served in the Naval Reserves for eight years as a medical corpsman where he received experience in field medicine and nursing.
Nearly all high risk industries, such as aerospace, nuclear, and military, use simulation training to prepare their workforce to operate in a hazardous environment. The most recent high risk industry to embrace and adopt simulation training is medicine. Nearly 90% of all surgeons who use surgical robots have undergone some form of virtual reality training. In addition, engineers, marketing managers, sales reps, hospital administrators and government agencies can also utilize simulation to efficiently achieve a variety of objectives. This presentation will review the various roles of simulation for many of the stakeholders in the surgical robotics industry.\\r\\n

The political and economic landscape of world’s largest economies has changed in recent years. Similar to NAFTA and Asian markets, accession of new member states to European Union (EU) presents a new challenge to guarantee sustainable and successful economic developments of all regions in EU. To facilitate the essential flow of available natural and technological resources all across Europe, the EEC Commission requires most advanced and sophisticated Intelligent Transport and Logistics solutions including, International, Transport, Warehousing and Web Logistics. The paper presents current state of the Industrial Logistics Systems in India and Japan and IRU World’s Congress on Transport and Technologies of Tomorrow. The paper further discusses the issues related to new developments and research challenges the areas of future Industrial Transport, Warehousing and Web Logistics technologies. The paper also discusses the importance of Cyberspace’s Quality of Service (QoS) provision in support of Industrial Logistics and Transport. The paper promotes further research and innovation in Future Cyberspace, Intelligent Logistics & Transport Systems in support of successful global markets.
