Contact Interpretation and Control

This complementary theme concerns with the contact phenomenon which is a natural part of any application of a dexterous mechanisms or interaction with virtual world. The objectives are to model and experiment with various types of contact (with and without the effect of friction), contact signatures and methods of control and simulation of contact events. Appications of the results are in grasping and manipulation, active parts feeder, controlled impact in exploratory motions of the manipulators and haptic rendering.

Some of the recent publications related to this theme are:
