Controlled Tactile Exploration and Haptic Object Recognition
In this paper we propose a novel method for in-hand object recognition. The method is composed of a grasp stabilization controller and two exploratory behaviours to capture the shape and the softness of an object. Grasp ...
A Flexible and Robust Large Scale Capacitive Tactile System for Robots
Capacitive technology allows building sensors that are small, compact and have high sensitivity. For this reason it has been widely adopted in robotics. In a previous work we presented a compliant skin system based on ...
A representation of robotic behaviors using component port arbitration
Developing applications considering reactiveness, scalability and re-usability has always been at the center of attention of robotic researchers. Behavior-based architectures have been proposed as a programming paradigm ...
The Free-play Sandbox: a Methodology for the Evaluation of Social Robotics and a Dataset of Social Interactions
Evaluating human-robot social interactions in a rigorous manner is notoriously difficult: studies are either conducted in labs with constrained protocols to allow for robust measurements and a degree of replicability, but ...
