Charles, Motion Studies seems like a very interesting application tool for Industrial Engineers. Just wondering how the robot would assist in the engineering analysis event?

Cabe, yes it would be interesting to see how the sensor data is converter to robot movement. Since the data is coming from body movement, it may not distinguish between pleasant dreams and unpleasant dreams unless the dream affected body movement.

Robert, I agree. Ann this is a nice article.The idea of using FSR data to control a robot is pretty cool. I discussed FSR's and motion control in my book, Learn Electronics with Arduino and can see the technique in operating a robot being implemented in this application. I'm wondering what's the room rate for this techno-art experience?

Seems like this technology could be used by industrial engineers for motion studies in manufacturing work envelopes.

It is an interpretation of the data, so how was the software designed? It would be interesting to see how the data is handled. I will admit, I'd like my dreams to be interpreted. I would like to see a nightmare vs. a typical one.

Nice article, Ann, and a very cool video. It will be interesting to see what other applications develop from this robot. Any thoughts on that, Ann?

A Frost & Sullivan study finds that increased cyber attacks are prompting a flurry of innovative protection tools.
Devices and interconnected systems are finding a foothold not only in our homes but in mainstream organizations. Here are three tips to mitigate the risk.
What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions. The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
