Explorations in Experiential Robotics with Dr. Taskin Padir

Dr. Taskin Padir discusses the four pillars of experiential robotics and challenges and opportunities for research in achieving seamless human-robot teaming.

The talk highlights our prior and ongoing research projects on collaborative robotics in the home and workplace. Systems, and methods will be presented in deformable object manipulation, prosthetic hand control, humanoid robotics, and collaborative robotics.

This discussion helps support the work of Helping Hands: Monkey Helpers as we both pursue the benefits of innovative technologies to assist those living with physical disabilities and support our post-service monkeys.
