Data-Driven Modelling of Deformable Materials for Robotic Manipulation

Lead Research Organisation: University of Edinburgh
Department Name: Sch of Informatics


This project is about developing and implementing data-driven methods for robotic manipulation of deformable materials. This will entail enabling robots to learn physical properties incrementally, using multimodal feedback (e.g. tactile sensing, torque & visual feedback), and to reason causally during active exploration, in order to figure out the structure of a material. One of this project's aspirations is to develop technology that will ultimately be impactful in biology and medicine.
