Rapid Categorization of Object Properties from Incidental Contact with a Tactile Sensing Robot Arm,
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-10)
We demonstrate that data-driven methods can be used to rapidly categorize objects encountered through incidental contact on a robot arm. Allowing incidental contact with surrounding objects has benefits during manipulation ...
Material Recognition from Heat Transfer given Varying Initial Conditions and Short-Duration Contact
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015)
When making contact with an object, a robot can use a tactile sensor consisting of a heating element and a temperature sensor to recognize the object’s material based on conductive heat transfer from the tactile sensor ...
Haptic Classification and Recognition of Objects Using a Tactile Sensing Forearm
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-10)
In this paper, we demonstrate data-driven inference of mechanical properties of objects using a tactile sensor array (skin) covering a robot's forearm. We focus on the mobility (sliding vs. fixed), compliance (soft vs. ...
Inferring Object Properties from Incidental Contact with a Tactile-Sensing Forearm
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-09)
Whole-arm tactile sensing enables a robot to sense properties of contact across its entire arm. By using this large sensing area, a robot has the potential to acquire useful information from incidental contact that ...
Tactile Sensing over Articulated Joints with Stretchable Sensors
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-04)
Biological organisms benefit from tactile sensing across the entire surfaces of their bodies. Robots may also be able to benefit from this type of sensing, but fully covering a robot with robust and capable tactile sensors ...
Multimodal Execution Monitoring for Anomaly Detection During Robot Manipulation
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2016-05)
Online detection of anomalous execution can be valuable for robot manipulation, enabling robots to operate more safely, determine when a behavior is inappropriate, and otherwise exhibit more common sense. By using ...
