How does a robot learn to touch?

Interview with Katherine J. Kuchenbecker about haptic intelligence

How does a robot feel? It can’t feel emotions, but it can feel the world around it. We humans are naturally pretty good at feeling heat, pressure or vibration on our skin. With a robot this gets a little more complicated. Our Cyber Valley Public Engagement Manager Rebecca Beiter wanted to know how a robot gets a sense of touch. For the podcast “Direktdurchwahl” she talked to the expert Katherine J. Kuchenbecker. Kuchenbecker leads the Haptic Intelligence Department at Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart.
