CSN fellowship for THEO MURPHY meeting on Active Touch Sensing 2011
31 January to 02 February 2011 Kavli Royal Society International Centre
Organised by: Professor Tony Prescott, Professor Alan Wing, Professor Mathew Diamond and Professor John Nicholls FRS
Active touch is finding out about the world by reaching out and exploring—sensing by ‘touching’ as opposed to ‘being touched’. This meeting is about the behavioural, physiological and neuronal underpinnings of active touch in a range of species, including man, and about building robots with biomimetic tactile sensing systems that can help us understand our own sense of touch.
