Abstract
This article deals with the problem of the recognition of human hand touch by a robot equipped with large area tactile sensors covering its body. This problem is relevant in the domain of physical human–robot interaction for discriminating between human and non-human contacts and to trigger and to drive cooperative tasks or robot motions, or to ensure a safe interaction. The underlying assumption used in this article is that voluntary physical interaction tasks involve hand touch over the robot body, and therefore the capability to recognize hand contacts is a key element to discriminate a purposive human touch from other types of interaction. The proposed appr...
