Robots have become increasingly skilled at interacting with the world around them.
However, visual capabilities are not able to provide a comprehensive understanding of the physical world – robots also need a sense of touch to unlock their full potential.
As robotic tactile sensing technology has advanced to replicate human-level touch capabilities, the need for simulations is critical to test and validate experimental work and research in robotics.
Join Wenzhen Yuan, Assistant Professor at Carnegie Mellon University, Roberto Calandra, Research Scientist at Meta AI, and Ireti Akinola, Researcher at NVIDIA, as they discuss the importance of tactile sensing simulation for advancements in robotics.
During this webinar, you will gain insight into:
- Why is tactile sensing simulation important?
- What are the different approaches to tactile sensing simulation?
- What are the challenges with today’s tactile sensing simulation workflows?
- How should tactile sensor makers support simulations for ease and efficiency?
