In order to minimize complications during orthopedic surgery, the important of research in this field is gaining importance and more studies are being conducted. The use of robotics and autonomous systems is gaining importance to achieve the aims reducing complications, lowering operation times, and increasing the surgical reliability and effectiveness in bone drilling operations that constitute a sub-set of the Computer-Aided Orthopedic Surgery (CAOS) issue. In this study, signal processing-based approaches for breakthrough detection during bone drilling operations, robotic autonomous systems that optimize optimal plunge and drilling speed while drilling, most effective drilling parameters that affect bone perforation, and studies conducted to improve the safety and efficiency of surgical operations, such as radiological imaging, were investigated. A systematic review of recent studies on bone drilling was performed and potential research topics were proposed for possible future studies
