Object exploration using vision and active touch



EPSRC grant on tactile superresolution sensing (EP/M02993X/1) and Leverhulme Grant on 'Biomimetic Forebrain for Robot Touch' (RL-2016-39).
The following data was obtained from the TacTip, an optical tactile sensor integrated on a 6-dof robotic arm. Data was collected for contour following experiments. Location and identity data was collected over 360 deg (20 degree increments) and a 20 mm range (1 mm increments) across the edge. Paper to be published in proceedings of IROS 2017.
