Workshop on Advanced Motion Capture
Dr. Carolina Brum Medeiros will present a two-day workshop at BRAMS on advanced motion capture techniques for the analysis of performer movements.
Using the large Qualisys system available at BRAMS, she will discuss effective marker placement and data fusion techniques for the capture of expert performances, using examples of various instrument performances and sports.
Tuesday, April 26th, from 9 am to 5 pm
Wednesday, April 27th, from 2 pm to 6 pm
Anyone can participate; please send an e-mail to email@example.com if you wish to attend.
Dr. Carolina Brum Medeiros is a researcher and an engineer. She is the founder and CEO of Fliprl, and a research affiliate of the IDMIL Lab in Montreal. She is currently assigned as R&D engineer on the Signal Processing and Gesture Recognition team of Project Soli at Google ATAP. She received a B.Sc. degree in electrical engineering, and a M.Sc. degree in mechanical engineering 2009 from the Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina, Florianópolis, Brazil, and a Ph.D. degree with the Music Technology Program at McGill University in 2015. Her Ph.D. research was dedicated to improve sensing of human input signals, under the supervision of Prof. Marcelo Wanderley (McGill). Her primary research is about sensing and sensor fusion for human motion analysis. Her research aims to highlight the benefits of applying signal processing techniques for systems whose models are hard to define, or for cases where the ground truth is unknown. She collaborated with Prof. Joseph Paradiso (MIT Media Lab) developing data fusion techniques for sensor and motion capture data of baseball pitching. As an engineer and an active person, she is passionate about testing, evaluating, and producing new sensing techniques for motion analysis, posture and movement awareness.
