Overview: International experts will present the current state-of-the-art in systems for robotic manipulation of flexible materials. The workshop will address the challenges found in sensing, perception, cognition, planning and handling, as well as manipulator design. Expertise and capability in dexterous manipulation of flexible materials being of critical importance to EU manufacturing robotics, this workshop is intended to serve as a forum to identify key unsolved problems in this field. We also intend this workshop to act as a catalyst for forming new collaborations targeting Horizon 2020 robotics funding.
