We are investigating strategies for robot interaction with piles of objects and materials in cluttered scenes. In particular, interaction with unstructured sets of objects will allow a robot to explore and manipulate novel items, in order to perform useful tasks such as counting, arranging, or sorting even without having a prior model of the objects.
