With this workshop we want to further build up the community of Proximity Perception. This objectives of the workshops are:

  • Further establish the community working on Proximity Perception
  • Introducing the field of Proximity Perception to the general robotics audience
  • Bridging from Tactile Perception to Proximity Perception
  • Providing a forum for the community to exchange ideas, knowledge and establish new collaborations with researchers and industrial partners
