Abstract:Robots in theatre are a new and upcoming concept which bring their own very unique challenges. The theatre group Sonnevanck is in need of a robot-actor for their upcoming traveling children theatre show. This graduation project aims to explore the possibilities for robot-actors and to figure out what the design criteria are for Sonnevanck’s robot. This is done through several unique experiments and through the building of a prototype. Sonnevanck wants a robot that is emotionally expressive, capable of singing with the same quality as a human and can interact with the world. Furthermore, the robot is fully controlled by an actor who is the voice of the robot as well. This graduation project provides a host of design criteria and recommendations to be used to build Sonnevanck’s robot-actor.
