How can we understand aspects of rhythm and motion through the design and construction of interactive systems and robots?
About the research
We investigate aspects of rhythm and motion through robotics and technology. This includes the creation of interactive music systems, with a focus on multi-dimensional mapping from sensors to musical parameters. Moreover, we design and prototype adaptive robot systems, and explore both human-robot and robot-robot interactions in collective settings.
We employ a multitude of methods, including artificial intelligence, machine learning, simulations, modeling, rapid prototyping, as well as iterative and creative design processes. This analysis-by-synthesis approach will lead to new understanding of rhythmic phenomena in general, and can also lead to applications in rehabilitation and art.
