*Motivation and Objectives*

Tactile sensing technology has achieved tremendous progress in recent
decades. Nowadays,advanced tactile sensors are available


    forcoveringlarge regions of the robot body (e.g. torso, arms, leg
    etc)andenabling manipulation with the whole-body


    for robot hands, to enhancedexterous manipulation capabilities


    in wearable devices, tofacilitateneuro-scientific and physiological
    studies to deepenour understanding of sensori-motor control processes

However, the dexterous manipulation skills of robots are still lacking
as compared tothose of humans. Possible reasonsare:


    Available sensors are limited with low temporal and spatial
    resolution compared to human's mechanoreceptors


    Tactile data processing algorithms need to be improved, via machine
    learning,to automatically extract significantfeatures


    A generic and robust manipulation control framework incorporating
    strong sensori-motor feedback loops is still missing

Within this special issue, we will bring together experts from the
different domains, including tactile hardware development, robot
manipulation and machine learning,to discuss recent progress and
remaining challenges in tactile-based robotic manipulation, and to draw
a whole-scene picture of tactile perception in manipulation with
harmonic mixture of multidisciplinary research. All the submissions for
this Special Issue will undergo the regular IJHR review process.

*List of Topics*


    Advanced anthropomorphic tactile sensor development and calibration


    Tactile display devices in teleoperation such as surgical robots


    Whole-body tactile-based manipulation and safety


    Deep learning and its applications to tactile sensing and control


    Tactile-driven exploration strategies


    Tactile-driven robot body / tool self-calibration(robot body schema)


    Tactile servoing and manipulation


    Tactile image and tactile object perception


    Tactile-based unknown object grasp and in-hand manipulations


    Using tactile for unknown object reconstruction, classification and
    slip detection
