Visuo-Tactile Predictive Coding and Active Inference for Grasp and Manipulation
New Advances in Tactile Sensation, Interactive Perception, and Learning
Haptics, or the sense of touch, enables humans to interact with their environment and is crucial to manipulation challenges in everyday life. It enables grasping, manipulation, learning, and decision-making based on the information from mechanoreceptors distributed in muscles and over the skin. Humans use haptic exploration to interact with their environment, e.g. to recognize an object's shape and mechanical properties.
