Mi piaci se ti muovi – I like to move it @ Maker Faire Rome 2017

Estro sarà espositore alla Maker Faire di Roma dall’1 al 3 Dicembre 2017.

Orario:

  • Venerdì 1 dicembre: 9:00 – 19:00
  • Sabato 2 dicembre: 10:00 – 19:00
  • Domenica 3 dicembre 10:00 – 19:00

Attività proposte:

  1. Il visitatore si muove davanti ai dispositivi di acquisizione (kinect + leap motion).
    I movimenti vengono riprodotti in tempo reale dal robot umanoide NAO. Sul monitor sono mostrati dati significativi sui movimenti compiuti.
  2. Gioco interattivo. Il gioco crea documentazione e statistiche sulla performance dell’utente. Tale documentazione potrà essere prodotta ad un medico per l’analisi dei dati e potrà essere utile soprattuto nel caso di soggetti con disabilità motorie per monitorarne i progressi nel tempo.

Estro will be an exhibitor at the Maker Faire of Rome from the 1st to the 3rd December 2017.

Timetable:

  • Friday 1st December: 9:00 – 19:00
  • Saturday 2nd December: 10:00 – 19:00
  • Sunday 3rd December: 10:00 – 19:00

Proposed activities:

  1. The visitor moves in front of the capture devices (kinect + leap motion). The movements are played in real time by the NAO humanoid robot. Significant data on the movements are shown on the monitor.
  2. Interactive game. The game creates user performance documentation and statistics. This documentation can be produced by a doctor for data analysis and may be useful especially in the case of motor-impaired persons to monitor their progress over time.

NAO – Kinect – Leap Motion

In most cases, when approaching a robot controlling software, the attention paid by developers in designing the GUI turns out to be poor.
The innovation introduced with the NUI makes possible to have a wide range of applications that allow the user to interact employing movements and a natural language.

Some fields of application:

  • Disability: Refine the fine/gross motor skills. By subjecting targeted interactive games to the user, you can keep track of progress over time, and then make statistics about them. This allows you to treat not only in hostile places such as medical rooms but also in other contexts more pleasing to the individual.
  • Autism: Autistic subjects have great difficulty in establishing visual contact with other people but thanks to NAO, who can attract their attention, visual contact is held for a long time, without the child experiencing intimidation or anxiety. Registering movements that give the robot a more “human” attitude helps to make sessions longer and more effective.
  • Artificial Intelligence: Allow humanoid robots or virtual characters to reproduce and recognize the gesture and the typical movements of an individual, giving them a “more humane” behaviour.
  • Remote control of devices: In situations of danger or impossibility, it is essential to remotely control robots, in order to prevent damage to things or people (eg disinfection of devices).
  • Universal Language for Robots: Command N robots involves learning of different N interfaces. By using a universal language of gestures, a gesture is associated with a certain behavior, whatever the robot is. This would mean learning a single language for infinite robots!

NAO and Kinect

ENG 🇬🇧:
In situations of danger or impossibility, it is essential to remotely control robots. The software is intended as a framework for the development of interactive applications.
In most cases, when approaching a robot controlling software, the attention paid by developers in designing the GUI turns out to be poor.

The innovation introduced with the NUI, now makes, nowadays, possible a wide range of applications that allow the user to interact employing movements and a natural language.
A potential application, could be a remotely controlled robot, both for anthropomorphic robots and not.

Furthermore, the platform could be used for medical treatment, as an example in the field of severe disabilities, in order to keep track of progress, developing applications that present to user games in order to improve fine and large motricity.
In this thesis, the framework has been implemented in the following way: the human moves in front of capture device. Through a wireless communication system, the robot reproduces in real time what the human performs.

ITA 🇮🇹:
In situazioni di pericolo o di impossibilità, risulta essenziale comandare in remoto dei robot. Il software si propone come un framework per lo sviluppo di applicazioni interattive.
Nella maggior parte dei casi, quando si approccia un software per il controllo di un robot, l’attenzione che gli sviluppatori pongono nella progettazione dell’interfaccia grafica (GUI), risulta risulta essere scarsa.

L’innovazione introdotta con la NUI (Interfaccia Utente Naturale) rende ora possibili una vasta gamma di applicazioni che consentono all’utente di interagire con il dispositivo utilizzando i movimenti e un linguaggio naturale.

Una possibile applicazione del framework, potrebbe essere quella di pilotaggio remoto di robot, sia per dispositivi antropomorfi che non.

Inoltre, la piattaforma potrebbe essere utilizzata per applicazioni mediche, ad esempio nel campo delle disabilità gravi, per tenere traccia dei progressi, sviluppando applicazioni che sottopongano all’utente giochi al fine di affinare motricità grossa e fine.

In questa tesi, il framework è stato implementato nel seguente modo: l’umano si muove davanti al dispositivo di acquisizione. Mediante una comunicazione senza fili, il robot riproduce in tempo reale ciò che l’umano esegue.

Mi contatti per maggiori informazioni.

Multiple NAO controller with GUI

With the NAO robot control software, you can’t control more than one device at a time.
The software allows you to control multiple robots at the same time, with a user friendly GUI.

The main goal is to ensure maximum robustness.

It can be used in public occasions with entertaining purposes.

Here the result:
I apologise for the noise and for the laboratory a little bit messy! 😉
