Control of a Robot Dancer for Enhancing Haptic Human-Robot Interaction in Waltz
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Haptics
By Hongbo Wang,Kazuhiro Kosuge
Issue Date:July 2012
pp. 264-273
Haptic interaction between a human leader and a robot follower in waltz is studied in this paper. An inverted pendulum model is used to approximate the human's body dynamics. With the feedbacks from the force sensor and laser range finders, the robot is ab...

More and more AI researchers are trying to make robots dance to music. This installment of T&C features five essays showing how this research addresses issues that are central to dance.
Impedance-based Motion Control of Passive-type Robot Porter for Handling an Object
Found in: Robotics and Biomimetics, IEEE International Conference on
By ZhiDong Wang, Kenta Fukaya, Yasuhisa Hirata, Kazuhiro Kosuge
Issue Date:December 2006
pp. 709-714
A concept on realizing impedance-based motion control of a passive type robot for transporting a single object in coordination with a human operator is proposed in this paper. We developed a prototype of passive type robot referred to as RI Porter, which c...
Dance partner robot: an engineering approach to human-robot interaction
Found in: Proceeding of the 5th ACM/IEEE international conference on Human-robot interaction (HRI '10)
By Kazuhiro Kosuge
Issue Date:March 2010
pp. 201-201
A Dance Partner Robot, PBDR (Partner Ball Room Dance Robot), dances a waltz as a female dancer together with a human male dancer. The waltz, a ball room dance, is usually performed by a male dancer and a female dancer, and consists of a certain number of s...
