transHumUs: A poetic experience in mobile robotics. Guilhem Saurel, Michel Taïx and Jean-Paul Laumond. In 2016 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA), pages 2908-2914, Stockholm, Sweden, May 2016. (PDF)

Abstract

transHumUs is an artistic work recently exhibited at the 56th Venice Biennale. The work aims at freeing trees from their roots. How to translate this poetic ambition into technological terms? This paper reports on the setup and the implementation of the project. It shows how state of the art mobile robotics technology can contribute to contemporary art development. The challenge has been to design original mobile platforms carrying charges of three tones, while moving noiseless according to tree metabolism, in operational spaces populated by visitors.
