Abstract:For a Reactive Virtual Trainer(RVT), subtle timing and lifelikeness
of motion is of primary importance. To allow for reactivity, movement
adaptation, like a change of tempo, is necessary. In this paper we
investigate the relation between movement tempo, its synchronization to
verbal counting, time distribution, amplitude, and left-right symmetry of
a clapping movement. We analyze motion capture data of two subjects
performing a clapping exercise, both freely and timed by a metronome.
Our findings are compared to existing gesture research and existing biomechanical models. We found that, for our subjects, verbal counting adheres
to the phonological synchrony rule. A linear relationship between
the movement path length and the tempo was found. The symmetry between
the left and the right hand can be described by the biomechanical
model of two coupled oscillators.
