Proceedings of the 1st Workshop on Proximity Perception in Robotics at IROS 2018, Madrid, Spain , 10/2018


In this workshop the topic of Proximity Perception and its community was brought into a spotlight. The goal of the workshop was to establish networks and a vivid community in Proximity Perception and open the topic to the wider robotics community, as we expect
that Proximity Perception technologies will play an essential role for service and industrial robotics as well as for safe human-robot collaboration and compliant robotics applications in the near future.

These proceedings contain the papers accepted and presented during the poster session of the workshop.
