The main characteristics of an advanced robotic system should be the capacity of interaction with the environment based on perceptual information and strong capacity in performing tasks which are typically executed by humans. One of the most demanding robot tasks is dynamic manipulation of objects. The scenario becomes further challenging whenever the robotic system is mobile and the objects to be manipulated are deformable.
