Information about Complex Fingertip Parameters in Individual Human Tactile Afferent Neurons
(Society for Neuroscience, 2009)
Although information in tactile afferent neurons represented by firing rates has been studied extensively over nearly a century, recent studies suggest that precise spike timing might be more important than firing rates. ...
Active Estimation of Object Dynamics Parameters with Tactile Sensors
The estimation of parameters that affect the dynamics of objects—such as viscosity or internal degrees of freedom—is an important step in autonomous and dexterous robotic manipulation of objects. However, accurate and ...
Active sequential learning with tactile feedback
We consider the problem of tactile discrimination, with the goal of estimating an underlying state parameter in a sequential setting. If the data is continuous and high- dimensional, collecting enough representative data ...
