Abstract

Our research on the anthropomorphic flutist robot has been focused on understanding the human motor control, enabling the communication between human and robots, proposing novel applications for humanoid robots and introducing novel ways of musical expression. In this video, we are presenting the musical skills of the Waseda Flutist Robot. In particular, we are presenting the WF-4RIV; which is able of performing musical performances requiring basic as well as extended technical skills. Thanks to the most recent mechanical improvements, the WF-4RIV is able of performing musical scores that are commonly part of the repertoire of intermediate level players. In this video, we are presenting the WF-4RIV performing the Flight of the Bumble Bee, Le Cygne and Trois Duos de Mendelssohn et Lachner.
