Grasping deformable objects is not well researched due to the complexity in modelling and simulating the dynamic behavior of such objects. However, with the rapid development of physics-based simulators that support soft bodies, the research gap between rigid and deformable objects is getting smaller. To leverage the capability of such simulators and to challenge the […]
Accurately modeling local surface properties of objects is crucial to many robotic applications, from grasping to material recognition. Surface properties like friction are however difficult to estimate, as visual observation of the object does not convey enough information over these properties. In contrast, haptic exploration is time consuming as it only provides information relevant to […]
