Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

This paper reports our recent developments on sensor acquisition systems, taking advantage of computer network technology. We present a versatile hardware system which can be connected to wireless modules, Analog to Digital Converters, and enables Ethernet communication. We are planning to make freely available the design of this architecture. We describe also several approaches we tested for wireless communication. Such technology developments are currently used in our newly formed Performance Arts Technology Group.
