Travis – Robotic Musical Companion (no Titles) / Human-Robot Collaboration and Companionship Lab


First demo of “Travis” – an expressive robotic platform developed by the Media Innovation Lab at IDC Herzliya and the Georgia Tech Center for Music Technology.

TED Talk:…

Travis is fully controlled by an Android phone through Google’s ADK, and can therefore be expanded by custom mobile apps.

In this demo, it functions as an intelligent speaker dock, which can select songs from a library based on a rhythmic input, analyze the song’s beat and genre and produce beat-matched and genre-specific movements.
