Historically we are coming from different fields of interests, but since long we were working a lot today's technologies, so artistic interests focused on these fields areas.. For to analyse and to understand contemporary systems and techniques in terms of society and philosophy, we believe it is necessary to deconstruct and/or rebuild these systems and to face them in a direct way to the own mind and to the  ...   aspect of work is the human perception of the daily routine, as well as resulting from this, projections of request.. The everyday life is characterised according to its common meaning by an.. uniform flow.. The man is part of this daily routine which is subjected to an organised and experienced system.. Psychic processes, like the perception of daily situations - leisure time, work, religious rituals and accustomed living spaces, pass subconscious and get independent themselves based on repeated experience.. In work we also interpret the daily routine as a type of machinery in which the public is integrated.. An undisturbed, regulated and uniform flow within a system is usually prevented in work.. Confident situations are interrupted, reliable objects ripped out of its actual context and will be entrusted new.. tasks.. An unambiguous and therefore automatically perception on side of the spectator is nearly impeded.. The group f18 has acquired since 1996 most variousprojects and products in the areas robotic, installation and electronic media.. We work utmost transparency in technology and structure, profane the technological glorification and mystic and try to make and to grasp the relation between people and technology understandable.. Out of the artistic point of view, the intercourse the present and society is also always to investigate in the up-to-date common means pictures and tools.. So we have approached the present biases for example in that we develop systems, which work modern media, e.. g.. digital controls, sensors, camera supervision and just autonomous robots.. f18 constructs for several years such technology-implemented sculptures, installations and products.. By.. this way of learning we realised concrete possibilities of abstraction and conversion..

Short descreption of examplary projects:.. DROP OUTS /1997 Kampnagel, Hamburg Within this work we focused on the subject of daily routine.. Through a long neon-lighted corridor the visitor.. entered a scenery which was acted by different machine-actors, automats and automised rooms.. Thematic rooms were for example the religions room, work, leissure time, climate, polnish imbiss-bar.. This.. installation was controled via a central unit, wherfor each room was under camera surveilence.. Though not all.. rooms/machines were acting at the same time it was the visitors exercise to orientate themselves in this machineworld.. to claim the whole work.. The whole system was working basicly pre-defined, but the impulse for any action.. was inicialised by us, concerning the habits of the visitors.. Caused by this system the visitor/spectator was not served with an event, he was more or less forced to adapt to.. the rhythm of the installation for to take part and to investigate it.. IKIT /2000 GDI, Zürich/CH.. Robotic installation in a park.. One of the basic ideas of the project IKIT was to convert the iconographic and behaviour of computergames into.. the realworld.. This was based on the invitation of Migros Culturalpercet for the event Playground03 , a venue.. which dealed with the item of critical use in the subject of computer-games and virtual enviroments.. The installation consists out of three autonoumus robot-platforms, a central control unit the sse combined with.. a bench and an information screen and finally a low-resulution 512bulbs display.. Each robot had it s own characteristical appeariance the trackball, the cam-bot and the sound-bot - they were.. acting autonoumesly in the park inbetween leisuretime enjoying park-visitors.. The robot-artefacts implemented.. the technicaly ability to find obstacles and humans and even were able to follow them, if necessary.. Again the.. machine was controlling the tempo of interaction..  ...   recording devices and the cut styles/editorial style.. Surveillance cameras play an important role.. Even though surveillance cameras are immanent.. everywhere (in public life), their special aesthetic value is usually reserved for those few people who.. have access to a CCTV (Closed Circuit TV).. We use the aesthetic value, look and content of CCTV and.. transform it into Public CTV.. The huge picture-flow generated by the automated surveillance system poses a problem as far as the.. analysis and meaning of such systems is concerned.. It requires particular care when it comes to.. processing the information and managing the images.. Therefore sensor controls have been developed as.. a support, i.. e.. automated analysis has become a central focus point for research.. Only automated.. analysis systems can cope with such a big amount of audio-visual information.. For example, A:I:ZAPP, developed by Nicolas Anatol Baginsky, is an automated format- supervisor that.. manages a picture-flow on the basis of fixed parameters of the respective interests.. A:I:ZAPP is a video-editing unit controlled by artificial intelligence.. It has the ability to analyse, select.. and edit up to ten video sources.. Other than that there will be further automated devices such as - e.. - the Goldfish Disco by Gwendolin.. Taube.. The moderators of the Goldfish Disco are two goldfish that can be located by a video-matrix.. Different.. places they can go to in the aquarium trigger a special MIDI signal1, i.. : wherever the fish is swimming.. at this particular point in time decides which movie will be playing next.. Besides that, special camera-systems, we developed ourselves will be used, such as e.. radiocontrolled.. autonomous robot cameras broadcasting special or unknown perspectives.. :::::::::::::::::::::display.. Internet.. artgendaTV will mainly be broadcasted as a webTV program.. The technical infrastructure and streaming.. services are provided by art-lab.. com in Hamburg.. The artgenda biennial itself is meant to build a.. network of the Baltic social and cultural spaces.. To serve this purpose we would like to draw upon the.. diverse networks of the artists in their home regions.. Co-operation with Baltic and foreign TV channels.. and streaming partners such as TV5 in Riga and Channel29 in San Francisco are being negotiated.. The.. Hamburg TV channel Offener Kanal is willing to broadcast some sequences of the artgendaTV program.. Public space.. 3 public displays , consisting of ready made garages where the back walls have been replace by a.. pane, will be used as projection surfaces for the artgendaTV program.. The re-projections are fed by a.. broad-band connection and are situated in significant Hamburg places.. These artgendaTV broadcasting windows offer the opportunity of reaching people who are not primarily interested in art.. and thereby widening both impact and perspectives.. http://artgenda.. tv.. 1 i.. control skilful MIDI devices, e.. a MIDI keyboard which keys correspond to a video source instead of a sound..

Stefan Doepner / f18institut.. During the 90's these wierd shelters, roofs on legs, spread more and more in Germany, later they were rather hidden behind the houses or in the last corner of the garden, one.. could see them often when passing through towns with the train.. Slowly they were.. covered by green patina.. Whole time of being an artist, I always was and am living and working under precarious and temporary circumstances; these wiggly, tipsy, provisional wannabe objects, as this provisional tent is, put their spell on me..

About.. Hackteria.. /.. Hackteria is a collection of Open Source Biological Art Projects instigated in February 2009 by Andy Gracie (UK), Marc Dusseiller (CH) and Yashas Shetty (IN).. The aim of the project is to develop a rich web resource for people interested in or developing projects that involve DIY bioart, open source software and electronic experimentation.. As a community platform hackteria tries to encourage the collaboration of scientists, hackers and artists to combine their experitise, write critical and theoretical reflections, share simple instructions to work with lifescience technologies and cooperate on the organization of workshops, festival and meetings.. Robot Partner 3.. f18institute Develops Service Robot that Offers Human Task Support.. in Offices, Commercial Establishments and at Home.. Ljubljana, December 21, 2008.. f18institute lju.. and.. f18institute hh.. today announced their joint development.. of a service robot that can provide support for various services in offices, commercial facilities, and other areas in.. which people work, live or spend leisure time.. The newly developed robot features functions that enable it to provide.. such services as detecting and greeting guests, operating drill machines, drilling holes and.. measuring.. dust and.. other emmissions at night and day.. f18institute will develop the robot, with tasks scheduled to begin in June 2009.. Details of the robot are to be presented at the 3.. rd.. Robot-Partner exhibition scheduled to be held on September 15.. 2009 at.. in Ljubljana.. There will also be a demonstration of the robot at the.. 1.. st.. Robot-Partner exhibitionin Hamburg.. Video.. Drillbot - Robot Partner 3.. There is great anticipation for the application of robots for a wide range of fields such as in medical services, social services, housework, and so on.. According to Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), societal expectations are high for robots to contribute to the realization of an enriched society.. f18institute Laboratories has been conducting ongoing R D on robots for practical use, in the quest for robots to support people in their daily lives and make their lives more convenient.. f18institute's past robot offerings include the hexapedal robot Exoskeleton, Motion Prosthesis, Paintbot, Linespiders, Spraybot, PillerPaintbot, Robot Totem, Cellobot and Walking Head.. All of which were designed for a broad range of applications for R D of robot technologies and which are commercially available from f18institute.. f18institute also developed Robot-Partner 0.. 1, a home robot that can be controlled by two touch sensors and the Robot-Partner 2.. 0, an Automated Table Modificator, which are being sold by f18 on a limited basis.. Building on its past expertise in developing robots for R D and home-use applications, f18institute went further to the next level by developing a robot that can co-exist with people and provide services in a variety of places such as offices, homes and public facilities.. Newly Developed Robot System.. The new service robot is comprised of 4 drill-heads, capable of moving up, down, left, right, forward and backward, up to 7 pneumatic actuators for the movement, a CPU that controls the entire robot, sensors for detecting alive objects, obstacles and airpolution, a 2D visual interface system comprised of a digital signal processor (DSP) and custom hardware.. Key features of the robot are as follows:.. Ability to autonomously move to a designated location according to a pre-programmed map while carefully avoiding obstacles.. The robot is capable of quickly perceiving people or things in its surrounding areas while simultaneously measuring their location, through the use of a IR sensor and two ultra sonic sensors which can be quickly self-selected from its eight available sensors as necessary, using the newly developed sense- and control-software.. This processing enables the robot to detect and avoid obstacles so that it can move safely to a designated location, thereby making it capable of completing tasks alongside people.. 2.. Ability to climb walls by drilling holes, react toward voices when called loud, and accomplish tasks by following the program.. The robot is equipped with multiple microphones that enable detection of a sound source.. The robot can also by ultra sonic system detect people and can react on them verbally.. 3.. Ability to flexibly maneuver itself within compact spaces, on slopes, over minor surface gradations, and complete tasks.. 4.. Natural, easy-to-understand interface.. Future Developments.. The robot can connect to the Internet, search for information according to user request, and present the information in the method that best fits the situation, such as by announcing the information, displaying the information on a display, pointing to information on a separate source, and so on.. Various kinds of Internet services can be provided through the robot by using its network-related functions.. Self-equipped with a web server, the robot can be instructed, programmed and remote-controlled from an external devices such as computers, that do not feature specific applications for the robot.. Key Specifications.. Dimensions: 644 mm (width) x 566mm (depth) x 644 mm (height).. Weight: 43 kg.. Mobility of operable parts: Heads: 3 degrees of freedom, Arms: 4 degrees of freedom,.. Speed: 0.. 05km/hr.. Sensors: 2 ultrasonic sensors, 4 proximity sensors, 3 IR sensor..

  • Title: Developments in the fields of meassurement and control
    Descriptive info: Developments in the fields of meassurement and control, hard and software from1996 - 2004.. Recorder.. exe:.. This software was initially developed under MS-DOS for controlling installations via the computer keyboard and record the sequence of keyboard strokes for storage and further use.. Basically possible, but not very comfortable.. A music keyboard, standard sequencer software and MIDI-to-voltage hardware is much better for this purpose.. Therefore we developed the software in a way that the user can write very simple control scripts with a text editor and run them with recorder.. The program controls relay cards via the printer ports or the.. f18-ctrl-board.. via rs232.. Control scripts can be grouped in playlists and run in various modes (single,loop and random).. This program was the backbone of our early installations T1, T2, DROP OUTS and the developing instrument for exoskeleton´s walking sequences.. Recorders Follow-ups:.. StageControl.. and Derivates: Delphi-Based Software with.. Project-specific GUI.. and logic makes it easy to handle even complex installations.. Communication with external Hardware via MIDI and/or RS232 port PIC-Cards Small controller cards, equipped with a PIC microcontroller, four relays and buttons.. They can store a sequence in a nonvolatile memory, the sequence starts automatically at power on.. Flexible use for small objects, projectors etc.. Video switch.. Similar to the PIC-Cards, but with a video multiplex chip instead of relays.. It can store four different sequences and has four inputs for video sources and one video output.. MIDI-Controlled 8 x 8 -.. Video-Crosspoint-Switch.. - 100 X 160 mm Euro-Size PCB - Cinch-Connectors for Video I/O - 75 Ohm I/O Impedance - Operable via onboard-buttons and/or MIDI-In - MIDI-out for daisy-chaining or other purposes - Switch State displayed on 8X8 LED-Matrix - Sequences can be stored and run in standalone mode - Connector for LC-Display - Power Supply 9-12 V DC.. f18-Ctrl 1.. - Atmel  ...   and ISP-Port are accessible via connectors for external hardware e.. displays a.. keyboards - Port A usable as 10 Bit ADC - Power supply for controller and output circuits separate or common, as needed.. - Size 80 X 100 mm.. MIDI-Dimmer1.. This card in euro size (100 x 160 mm) controls 32 bulbs (230 V / 60 W) independently with 15 different levels of brightness.. Input data format is standard MIDI, daisy chaining is possible.. 16 of these cards control the 512-bulb display in our installation IKIT.. MIDI-Dimmer2.. Like Version 1.. 0, but also with DMX Port and protection circuits for switching (not dimming !! ) neons.. Onboard power Supply for the logic part for easier handling and less external wiring.. Evaluation platform.. for robotics A circle shaped platform equipped with two dc motors, diameter 50 cm.. It can drive in workshops, studios etc.. as well as outside on not too rough surfaces.. We use it for developing and testing sensors and software for use in robotic projects like IKIT.. At the moment it is equipped with an ultrasonic ranging device, wheel revolution counters, an acceleration sensor and an air bumper.. This is a bicycle tube around the platform´s circumference under medium air pressure.. When the platform collides with an obstacle, the pressure rises quickly.. This effect is monitored with a pressure sensor and used as collision detection.. The construction is very simple and robust in comparison to mechanical micro-switch based bumpers.. It also gives the platform a soft edge, important when operating in sensitive areas like museums.. For communication with mobile units we use 433 MHz transceivers.. The half-duplex protocol allows communication with several units from one base station on one frequency.. The wireless data transfer is used for monitoring several values, parameter-upload and in specific situations also remote controlling, especially emergency off..
