Tactile Afferent Simulation from Pressure Arrays
At present, autonomous, robotic dexterous manipulation in unknown environments still eludes us. Children only a few years old lift and manipulate unfamiliar objects more dexterously than today’s robots. Thus, robotics researchers increasingly agree that ideas from biology can strongly benefit the design of autonomous robots.
