1. A surgical system, comprising:

  • a surgical robot, comprising;

    a tool mounting interface;

    a controller; and

    a memory device comprising a default set of stored data;

    a tool component attachable to said tool mounting interface, wherein said tool component comprises a housing comprising a plurality of rotatable drive members;

    a first end effector attachable to said tool component, wherein said first end effector comprises a first set of stored data regarding a first set of end effector parameters pertaining to said first end effector, wherein said surgical robot is configured to ascertain said first set of stored data and enter a first operating state once ascertaining said first set of stored data; and

    a second end effector attachable to said tool component, wherein said second end effector does not comprise a set of stored data, wherein said surgical robot is configured to automatically enter a default operating state in response to said surgical robot ascertaining that said second end effector does not comprise a set of stored data, wherein said default set of stored data relates to a default set of end effector parameters, wherein said default set of stored data is different from said first set of stored data, wherein said surgical robot performs an intended end effector function defined by said default set of stored data when said surgical robot is in said default operating state, and wherein said intended end effector function has a tissue-changing effect.
