Leveraging physical contacts to interact with our surroundings is an essential skill to achieve any physical task, but contact-rich, dynamically changing environments often create significant challenges to autonomous robotic locomotion and manipulation. Unexpected slippage or loss of contact can cause a balance controller to fail during locomotion, incidental contacts with unseen obstacles can disrupt a manipulator during a pick-and-place task, and large impulse induced by contacts can result in irreparable damage to the robot hardware.
