Advances in touch enabled robotics

While robot manipulators traditionally relied on vision and some force sensing for control, recent years have seen a surge in new sensors to endow them with the sense of touch and related applications, as well as a deeper understanding of touch sensing in humans gained by experiments with advanced robotic devices. This workshop will present new tools (electronic skin, multisensory tiles etc.) available for equipping robots with the sense of touch, illustrates some of the behaviours these novel sensors enable to implement, and how this permits new ways for robots to interact with humans.
