Transcript

  • 1. EXPRESSIVE MOVEMENT IN ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN Design Frontiers Workshop Series at the Cal Design Lab at the College of Environmental Design at UC Berkeley Yasuto Nakanishi Keio Univ. / Stanford Univ.
  • 2. Various shapes of TrashCans in UC Berkeley Campus
  • 3. Several Boxes look like flocking.
  • 4. Flocking TrashCan Robot To build in physical movement of otherwise inanimate spacesTo build in physical movement of otherwise inanimate spaces what would move? trash boxes and cleaners why? to clean up UC Berkeley campus How should it feel? dynamic flock like “boid” simulation http://processing.org/examples/flocking.html
  • 5. Flocking TrashCan Robot That would make a good improvisational stage for showcasing people’s (and robots’) expressive movements. That would make a good improvisational stage for showcasing people’s (and robots’) expressive movements. How should it feel? People wants to going into the flock of cleaning boids and interact with them. http://processing.org/examples/flocking.html
  • 6. Flocking TrashCan Robot Simulation of an Arduino based 3WD robot in CityCompiler, a prototyping tool using jmonkeyengine http://www.nexusrobot.com/ product.php?id_product=87
  • 7. Flocking TrashCan Robot Simulation of a flock of trash box robots and cleaner robots in CityCompiler
  • 8. Flocking TrashCan Robot • With Only 3 rules, dynamic behavior emerges. • Separation: steer to avoid crowding local flockmates • Alignment: steer towards the average heading of local flockmates • Cohesion: steer to move toward the average position of local flockmates http://www.red3d.com/cwr/boids/
  • 9. Flocking TrashCan Robot • Team of TrashBox robots and Cleaner robots • one flock? or two flocks? • ratio? : 50:50? 30:70? 70:30?
  • 10. two flocks one flock
  • 11. 50:50
  • 12. 30:70
  • 13. 70:30
  • 14. Flocking TrashCan Robot • Interaction with People • going away from people? • coming near to people? • what is good balance?
  • 15. Flocking TrashCan Robot • Adding only one rule brings dynamic behavior of stopping at a person and backing to the flock. • Just changing flocking parameters brings the balance.
  • 16. Flocking TrashCan Robot Trash Box with Lid
  • 17. Flocking TrashCan Robot Wire Trash Box
  • 18. Flocking TrashCan Robot Google Android
  • 19. Flocking TrashCan Robot Final Prototype https://vimeo.com/70658886
  • 20. EXPRESSIVE MOVEMENT IN ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN • Robot2Robot • dynamic movement of “boid” flocking • Human2Robot • adding only one rule • the body works not only as a trash box but also as a cylinder display for Processing.
