Active whisker placement and exploration for rapid object recognition (2020)
Conference Proceeding
Pearson, M. J., & Salman, M. (2020). Active whisker placement and exploration for rapid object recognition. https://doi.org/10.1109/iros40897.2019.8968517

© 2019 IEEE. Identifying objects using sparse tactile sensor arrays requires movement across the surface and the integration of sensory information to support hypotheses. In this study we demonstrate a surface placement control strategy to orient and... Read More about Active whisker placement and exploration for rapid object recognition.

Toward navigating complex terrains using a biomimetic whisker sensor array (2019)
Thesis
Salman, M. Toward navigating complex terrains using a biomimetic whisker sensor array. (Thesis). University of Bristol. Retrieved from https://uwe-repository....ribe.com/output/5036676

This thesis proposes a parsimonious approach to localization, mapping and object recog- nition for a pseudo-mobile robot equipped with a biomimetic array of tactile whiskers to autonomously interact, explore and represent a real-world environment. Ta... Read More about Toward navigating complex terrains using a biomimetic whisker sensor array.

Whisker-ratSLAM applied to 6D object identification and spatial localisation (2018)
Conference Proceeding
Salman, M., & Pearson, M. J. (2018). Whisker-ratSLAM applied to 6D object identification and spatial localisation. https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-319-95972-6_44

© Springer International Publishing AG, part of Springer Nature 2018. The problem of tactile object identification has a strong connection with the problem of Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) in a physical 6-dimensional environment. Here...
