The field of robotic chefs in the kitchen presents unique challenges that require bimanual manipulation to attain human-level dexterity. The incorporation of a second robot arm is widely believed to enhance the manipulation capabilities and open up new research and practical applications. However, identifying the overarching challenges and specific module-related obstacles that have impeded progress in leveraging this novelty for the benefit of humans remains a pressing issue. Addressing these challenges necessitates a comprehensive, interdisciplinary perspective that goes beyond solving isolated component-level problems. It is imperative for roboticists from academia and industry to collaborate, jointly reviewing, re-investigating, reshaping, and driving advancements in this research domain (ICRA2024 theme “CONNECT+”). To guide our discussions, we have formulated the following question as a focal point for the workshop:
