—Localizing and manipulating features such as buttons , snaps, or grommets embedded in fabrics and other flexible materials is a difficult robotics problem. Approaches that rely too much on sensing and localization that occurs before touching the material are likely to fail because the flexible material can move when the robot actually makes contact.

— The potential utility of tactile sensors in manipulation has long been recognized. However, there are very few examples in the literature of systems that use tactile information any more complex than binary contact/no-contact sensors. This paper approximates a direct mapping between hand-object state and high-dimensional tactile measurements based on(More)
