An integrated environment for animal-machine co-existence
Bio-robotic symbiosis features a hexapod robot, two laboratory mice and the audience. The robot and the mice co-exist in a transparent plexiglass stand that is accessible to the audience. A video camera is attached on the robot sending image data to an originally designed Java program running on a PC. The program analyzes the video input in order to generate random sound and issue motion commands to the robot.
