PostSubject: Software gives amateurs control over robots   Mon Oct 18, 2010 3:26 am

Compiled from Kyodo, Staff report

An Ibaraki-based technology institute said Saturday it has developed software that allows anyone
without robotic expertise to program movements for a humanoid robot.

The software, called Choreonoid,was developed by the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology based in Tsukuba, Ibaraki Prefecture. It said the software enables people with no robot programming skills to create movements for a humanoid robot and control it with a mouse.
Since the software does not require prior knowledge of robotics, it allows people like graphic designers to develop creative movements for them, it said.

Using a mouse, users can easily create complicated movements, such as dancing and jumping, according to the institute. The software can calculate expected shocks to the robot, for example when it jumps up and down.

"With the software, we hope to make robots act, sing and even walk on a catwalk during a fashion show. We want to create a new content industry with the technology," said Shinichiro Nakazawa of the institute.
