WhoLoDancE: Deliverable 3.4 - Report on multimodal signal modelling

Piana, Stefano; Camurri, Antonio

This deliverable serves to summarize the input devices, data formats and methodologies adopted in the process of developing algorithms, software modules and applications for movement principle and qualities analysis.

Section 1 introduces the report and lists its objectives whereas Section 2 gives an overview of the data capture systems that are used in the context of the project; in particular, a description of professional motion capture systems, used during the production of the WhoLoDancE repository, and low-end capture devices, that are used in the low-cost applications, is given.

Section 3 introduces the methodology followed in the design and development of movement analysis algorithm and software modules, in particular, a conceptual framework is described where the qualities of movement are organized in a hierarchical way, going from physical signals to abstract, complex concepts.
