-----------------
Scope
Robots with a biomimetic level of tactile perception and interaction capability would transform our economy and society, with applications ranging from assistive robots in factories and at home, social interaction, healthcare and disaster rescue. The natural sense of touch that inspires technology is not limited merely to the anatomy of the sensory organs, but encompasses also the active behaviours and habits in using touch to interact with the environment, both in humans and animals. This workshop will encompass recent progress in the area of active touch for perception and interaction from the perspective of how nature inspires robotics.

Topics of interest include
- control of tactile sensors integrated with robotic devices such as robot hands
- new trends in biomimetic tactile sensing technology that facilitate active touch
- morphological computation that benefits active touch
- psychophysics and neuroscience of active touch in humans, rodents and other animals
- role of covert and overt attentional mechanisms in active touch
- interplay between active touch and other sensory modalities e.g. vision, proprioception

Preliminary list of invited speakers
Edward Adelson (MIT) – artificial tactile perception and tactile sensor fabrication
Jeremy Fishel (Syntouch) – bio-inspired active touch and tactile sensor fabrication
Ravinder Dahiya (Univ Glasgow) - robotic tactile sensing and electronic skin
Shinichi Hirai (Ritsumeikan Univ) - soft biomimetic tactile sensing
Allison Okamura (Stanford) – haptic feedback in humans
Tony Prescott (Univ Sheffield) – active touch, biomimetic whiskered robots
Nitish Thakor (Singapore Inst) - soft haptic neuroprosthetics
Pablo Vadivia (Singapore Univ) – underwater biomimetic touch
Yon Visell (UCSB) – active touch and haptics

In reply to this post by Nathan Lepora
Schedule now available, with an exciting full day of talks and posters on active touch in robotics...
------------------
Active touch for perception and interaction: How nature inspires robotics
ICRA 2018 Workshop - Friday 25 May, 2018 (all day)
Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, Australia

Website: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__sites.google.com_view_icra18activetouch&d=DwIF-g&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=jcnXtDPRy27b4i5CX-9AYPomYywisE4_IGXA5brbpdM&s=v-g-f9keD0FC9X2uw8mw1zYwqAshISIGi33bZmxbFBA&e=
-----------------
Scope
Robots with a biomimetic level of tactile perception and interaction capability would transform our economy and society, with applications ranging from assistive robots in factories and at home, social interaction, healthcare and disaster rescue. The natural sense of touch that inspires technology is not limited merely to the anatomy of the sensory organs, but encompasses also the active behaviours and habits in using touch to interact with the environment, both in humans and animals. This workshop will encompass recent progress in the area of active touch for perception and interaction from the perspective of how nature inspires robotics.
