To aid and support the continued collaboration and knowledge exchange of the ULTRACEPT researchers, the consortium hosts online bi-monthly ‘Sandpit Sessions’. The aim of these sessions is to provide researchers an opportunity to share their work in an informal forum where they can raise and discuss issues and challenges in order to gain support and feedback from the group.
Researchers Hongzhuo Liang and Shuang Li from the Universität Hamburg (UHAM) recently hosted a Sandpit Session on the 5th March 2021. The theme of the session was Robotic Grasping based on Deep Learning: Towards the Robust Perception. 28 attendees across the consortium participated.

|10:00-10:05||Arrival and welcome
|10:05-10:35||Robotic Grasping based on Deep Learning: Towards the Robust Perception
Autonomous robotic grasping is a challenging task, which includes many respects of research areas, e.g., perception, robotics, and psychology. In this talk, I will review the state of art in robotic grasping. Then, I will report the current working progress of my grasping work: from two-finger grasping to multi-finger grasping based on deep learning methods. This session will encourage an open-minded way for facilitating quick idea-exchanging.
|10:35-11:10||Group discussion about the session topic
How do bio-inspired methods help to design a better robotic grasping agent?
A group discussion where attendees can raise questions and discuss the topic of research and potential cooperation that was presented.
|Facilitated by Shuang Li|
|11.10-11.25||Open forum discussion
An opportunity for attendees to ask the group for advice regarding any challenges they are facing with their own research.
|Facilitated by Shuang Li
|11:25-11:30||Final comments & volunteer for a facilitator for the next session
We are planning our next sandpit session for May 2021.
