Proximity and tactile sensing can significantly improve manipulation performance

A team from the Correll Lab at CU Boulder will present their paper “Improving grasp performance using in-hand proximity and dynamic tactile sensing” at the International Symposium on Experimental Robotics (ISER) in Tokyo, Japan, where they demonstrate how to obtain dynamic tactile information similar to that in the human hand using a Baxter Parallel Gripper (PGBSMALL7+1).
