What sensors does the Da Vinci robot have?

Optical encoders, Hall sensors, magnetic encoders, infrared sensors.

How is the DaVinci robot controlled?

These are controlled by the surgeon’s hand movements via “master” instruments at the console. The “master” instruments sense the surgeon’s hand movements and translate them electronically into scaled-down micro-movements to manipulate the small surgical instruments. Hand tremor is filtered out by a 6-Hz motion filter.
