Thesis abstract:

Teaching robots to grasp and manipulate objects remains a challenging research area despite rapid progress in tabletop settings. Most current approaches fail under adverse sensing conditions, such as darkness, dust and obscuration. My research seeks to develop an information theory based approach which uses low cost, embedded, compact and novel sensing technologies to enable grasping of objects which are obscured from traditional off-hand sensing. This allows intelligent grasping under a wider range of circumstances, such as those found in agriculture, scientific applications and heavy industry.
