The tactile robotics group at Bristol Robotics Laboratory works on three interrelated research themes: (i) design and fabrication of 3d-printed biomimetic tactile sensors and hands (ii) artificial intelligence for perception and robot control from touch; (iii) biological mechanisms for perceptual decision making. In this talk, we discuss recent work in these three areas and how each informs one another.
