DEasy is an interactive sensor-based wearable device for assisting dancers to incorporate dance and choreography. Assisted by the control system, dancers can arrange the effects they like and easily create a dance show. The system communicates with the designated accelerometer sensor and obtain dancer's movement data dynamically. Then, movement analysis is implmented to find out the features of a particular gesture and a variety of mappling between gesture and choreography effects.A dancer can control amounts of stage elements such as visual effects of the background and the music of the dance.
We chosen the SensorTag by Texas Instruments. It has 6 built-in sensors in the tag, we only use the accelerometer sensor from now in this project. However, the default acceleration value is -/+ 2g, which is very senstitive for most of our dancing shows. Therefore, we strongly recommend to change the default acceleration. After many attempts, we finally chose -/+ 8g. Keep this acceleration setting as -/+ 8g, there is another alternative method to modify the sensitivity of Sensor Tag. Within our program, we can change the threshold value for different excution of each effect. This method is more convienent for dancers to modify sensitivity by themselves in the future.
The wearable accelerometer sensor is put into a glove-shaped cloth, placed on the back of the hand with a string fixed to the middle finger. For dance performance, most movements are performed by dancers' hands and arms. Compared with other parts of the body, it is better to wear the sensor on the dancer's arm or hand. The following pictures show how it looks like.
