Book Chapter
Prescott, T., Mitchinson, B., Lepora, N., Wilson, S., Anderson, S., Porrill, J., …Pipe, A. G. (2015). The robot vibrissal system: Understanding mammalian sensorimotor co-ordination through biomimetics. In A. Groh, & P. Krieger (Eds.), Sensorimotor Integration in the Whisker System, 213-240. Springer. https://doi.org/10.1007/978-1-4939-2975-7_10

We consider the problem of sensorimotor co-ordination in mammals through the lens of vibrissal touch, and via the methodology of embodied computational neuroscience—using biomimetic robots to synthesize and investigate models of mammalian brain archi...

Remotely deployable aerial inspection using tactile sensors (2014)
Journal Article
Macleod, C. N., Cao, J., Pierce, S. G., Sullivan, J. C., Pipe, A. G., Dobie, G., & Summan, R. (2014). Remotely deployable aerial inspection using tactile sensors. AIP Conference Proceedings, 1581 33, 1873-1880. https://doi.org/10.1063/1.4865052

For structural monitoring applications, the use of remotely deployable Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE) inspection platforms offer many advantages, including improved accessibility, greater safety and reduced cost, when compared to traditional manual...
