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

How and why to jot down a circulation? who's the author? who's the reader? they are choreographers operating with dancers. they are roboticists programming robots. they're artists designing cartoons in machine animation. In all such fields the aim is to precise an goal a few dance, a particular movement or an motion to accomplish, when it comes to intelligible sequences of user-friendly events, as a tune ranking that will be dedicated to movement illustration. regrettably there isn't any common language to jot down a movement. movement languages reside jointly in a Babel tower populated via biomechanists, dance notators, neuroscientists, machine scientists, choreographers, roboticists. each one neighborhood handles its personal techniques and speaks its personal language.

The e-book bills for this variety. Its foundation is a distinct workshop held at LAAS-CNRS in Toulouse in 2014.

Worldwide representatives of varied groups met there. Their problem was once to arrive a mutual realizing permitting a choreographer to entry robotics recommendations, or a working laptop or computer scientist to appreciate the subtleties of dance notation. The liveliness of this multidisciplinary assembly is mirrored by means of the e-book thank to the willingness of authors to percentage their very own reviews with others.
