Dear colleagues,


The Special issue of the IEEE Transactions on Robotics on 'Robotic Sense of
Touch' is available online at:

http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/RecentIssue.jsp?punumber=8860 

This link allows free access to all abstracts of the papers, as well as full
access to the pdf files by subscription (either individual or
institutional).

This is the first special issue published by any journal in the area of
touch sense modality in robotics. The issue contains 19 regular papers and
two short papers, which have been organized into three groups. The first
group of papers presents insights into the development of touch sensing
hardware and related system level issues. The focus of the papers that are
presented in the second and the third groups is on the development and
analysis of computational tools to obtain contact information from the data
acquired by the sensing hardware during a number of tasks performed by
robots.
