Mobile robot with vision and whisker array

The central technological achievement of the project was the construction of an active artificial whisker system and its test on a mobile robot. By incorporating biological insights (material properties, morphology and active sensing), this constituted a significant technological advancement of whisker-like artificial touch sensors, and contributed to a better understanding of the role of the sensor morphology for information processing.
