Dance Notations and Robot Motion (Springer Tracts in Advanced Robotics)


How and why to write down a move? who's the author? who's the reader? they're choreographers operating with dancers. they're roboticists programming robots. they're artists designing cartoons in laptop animation. In all such fields the aim is to precise an goal a couple of dance, a particular movement or an motion to accomplish, when it comes to intelligible sequences of ordinary routine, as a track rating that will be dedicated to movement illustration. regrettably there is not any common language to write down a movement. movement languages dwell jointly in a Babel tower populated by means of biomechanists, dance notators, neuroscientists, machine scientists, choreographers, roboticists. each one group handles its personal recommendations and speaks its personal language.

The publication debts for this variety. Its beginning is a different workshop held at LAAS-CNRS in Toulouse in 2014.

Worldwide representatives of assorted groups met there. Their problem was once to arrive a mutual knowing permitting a choreographer to entry robotics innovations, or a working laptop or computer scientist to appreciate the subtleties of dance notation. The liveliness of this multidisciplinary assembly is mirrored via the ebook thank to the willingness of authors to proportion their very own reports with others.
