Dance Notations and Robot Motion

Editors: Laumond, Jean-Paul, Abe, Naoko (Eds.)

Free Preview
  • Fascinating book comparing and combining human dance motion with robot motion
  • Presents recent dance notation systems, which structurally describe human movements by using symbols, as tools of motion segmentation
  • Explores the relationship between motion notation systems and engineering based methods for motion generation as developed in computer animation and humanoid robotics
  • Targets a multidisciplinary audience including roboticists, computer scientists, dance notators, choreographers, and beyond, researchers in neurophysiology, biomechanics or cognitive sciences

About this book

How and why to write a movement? Who is the writer? Who is the reader? They may be choreographers working with dancers. They may be roboticists programming robots. They may be artists designing cartoons in computer animation. In all such fields the purpose is to express an intention about a dance, a specific motion or an action to perform, in terms of intelligible sequences of elementary movements, as a music score that would be devoted to motion representation. Unfortunately there is no universal language to write a motion. Motion languages live together in a Babel tower populated by biomechanists, dance notators, neuroscientists, computer scientists, choreographers, roboticists. Each community handles its own concepts and speaks its own language.

The book accounts for this diversity. Its origin is a unique workshop held at LAAS-CNRS in Toulouse in 2014.

Worldwide representatives of various communities met there. Their challenge was to reach a mutual understanding allowing a choreographer to access robotics concepts, or a computer scientist to understand the subtleties of dance notation. The liveliness of this multidisciplinary meeting is reflected by the book thank to the willingness of authors to share their own experiences with others.
