Special Issue on Robot Vision for Dexterous Manipulation and Interaction
Changing application areas of today's robots towards complex tasks, overlapping workspaces and direct physical contact also with humans in public, industrial or home environments require appropriate computer vision approaches in order to facilitate efficient, safe and smooth manipulation and interaction. Emerging fields of application include e.g. cloth handling, agri- and horticulture, food industry, human-robot interaction in industrial, assistance and care scenarios, medical/surgical applications, and others. Such applications for robotic dexterous handling require extended visual perception capabilities including all aspects of the perceptual chain including feature extraction, articulated, deformable and dynamic object modeling, multi-focal and multi-camera vision, dynamic vision and vision-based control, planning aspects, higher level cognitive functions, innovative vision sensor design, innovative architectures, etc.
This special issue gathers contributions, which include, but are not limited to all these aspects of robot vision for dexterous manipulation and interaction. Novel field applications papers are also welcome.
