Learning through touch
A sense of touch is a vital aspect of this learning process. Just like humans learn better through touch and interaction, robots benefit greatly from it too. Thanks to a haptic device, which simulates the sense of touch for the teacher, robots can now learn and improve their skill by interacting with its environment. Otherwise, it would struggle to perform tasks effectively. When it can interact with its surroundings through touch, it becomes successful in carrying out various actions, like flipping a pancake, demonstrating the power of incorporating touch in the learning process.
