Our final goal is the development of search robots that can gather environment information autonomously in the real world. We are developing an environment recognition method based on visual and tactile informations. In our approach, visual information includes color, shape and motion data. Tactile information includes contact point and contact force data. Unknown objects can be recognized by using both informations.
