Interactive Perception at Toyota Research Institute


Dr. Carolyn Matl, Research Scientist at Toyota Research Institute, explains why Interactive Perception and soft tactile sensors are critical for manipulating challenging objects such as liquids, grains, and dough. She also dives into “StRETcH” a Soft to Resistive Elastic Tactile Hand, a variable stiffness soft tactile end-effector, presented by her research group.
