Call for participation

ICRA 2015 Workshop
“GET IN TOUCH! “- Tactile & force sensing for autonomous, compliant, intelligent robots

May 30th, 8.30-12.30, room WSCC 6A, Washington Convention Center, Seattle

Website: http://www.ausy.tu-darmstadt.de/Workshops/ICRA2015TactileForce

*** GOAL ***
The goal of this workshop is to highlight recent applications of tactile and force sensors, as well as presenting the state of art of such sensor technologies for robotics applications and discussing future directions of research for a pervasive use of such sensors.
This workshop is a forum to foster the dialogue between industry and academia, to present to the community the recent advances in sensing technologies, in the research and applications of such sensors for the new generation of robots.
