Low Force Pressure Measurement : Pressure Sensor Matrices for Gesture Analysis , Stiffness Recognition and Augmented Instruments

Grosshauser, Tobias

Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

The described project is a new approach to use highly sensitive low force pressure sensor matrices for malposition, cramping and tension of hands and fingers, gesture and keystroke analysis and for new musical expression. In the latter, sensors are used as additional touch sensitive switches and keys. In pedagogical issues, new ways of technology enhanced teaching, self teaching and exercising are described. The used sensors are custom made in collaboration with the ReactiveS Sensorlab.
