Special Issue on Experimental Robotic Grasping and Manipulation

The special issue will focus on promoting comparable researches in robotic
grasping and manipulation. Recently, there is a worldwide trend in designing
benchmarks for performance evaluation, establishing the community consensus
for tasks and rules in competitions, collecting and organizing grasping and
manipulation datasets for learning, evaluations, and comparisons. In the
last several years, a number of groups in the robotics society have produced
high-quality grasping evaluation objects (such as YCB object set),
benchmarking metrics (such as the NIST grasping and manipulation performance
metrics and benchmarks), daily-living manipulation evaluation tasks (such as
the IROS RGMC tasks), manufacturing evaluation tasks (such as the IROS RGMC
tasks and WRC tasks), and grasping and manipulation datasets (such as the
MIT pushing dataset, IIT robotic hand dataset, USF manipulation dataset,
Upenn tactile dataset, and Harvard tactile dataset). These are great assets
and very valuable for the progression of research in robotic grasping and
manipulation. The objectives of the special issue are to bring together
research work from different domains for their common interests in
experimental robotic grasping and manipulation, to consolidate their
efforts, achievements, and resources, to address the state-of-art research,
and to produce fair, easily-implementable, and widely-acceptable benchmarks
and evaluation tasks. Topics to be covered include, but are not limited to:

• Gripper/end effector assessment
• Performance metrics and benchmarks
• Manipulation datasets
• Benchmark-oriented design and development
• Learning manipulation from datasets
• Benchmarking mobile manipulations
• Grasp planning based on manipulation datasets
• Force/tactile sensing datasets for manipulation
• Non-prehensile manipulation datasets and models
• Experience-based motion planning for manipulation
• Pick-and-place in logistics competition
• Daily-living manipulation competition
• Manufacturing manipulation competition
