Title: Musical Humanoids
Authors: Grungerg, David

Keywords: humanoids;music
Issue Date: 15-Apr-2010
Series/Report no.: Research Day Category: Physical Science and Engineering
Abstract: Humanoids have become increasingly capable in recent years. Enabling these robots to mimic human musical activities is an ongoing area of research; however, most developments in this field have employed pre-programmed motions, and robots remain incapable of responding to changes in music. We have developed algorithms that allow a small humanoid robot, RoboNova, to dance to music and play notes on a keyboard. This robot serves to prototype our algorithms before applying them to Hubo, a more advanced life-sized humanoid. We hope to make Hubo capable of musical interaction, thereby providing a platform to study robot motor control and human creative expression.
