Description:With the advent of sensitive electronic skins covering large areas of robot bodies, their spatial calibration - position of individual sensors with respect to the robot kinematic model - is gaining importance. In [3,4], CAD-based calibration, self-contact, and 3D reconstruction was compared. 3D reconstruction was found to be most accurate but the procedure rather laborious, involving manual labeling of individual tactile sensors in images. In this work, we focus on making this procedure more automated by exploring different ways of automatically identifying tactile sensors in images.
