Armando Menicacci, the director of Mediadanse/Univ. Paris 8 is leading a research project called “Human Gait” in collaboration with boDig (Istanbul) and the Performing Arts Track of Istanbul Bilgi University.
To understand the walking parametres is essential for many reasons. In this project, we want to analyse the relative acceleration and deceleration of head-chest-pelvis. With the use of accelerometers, the project is about collecting this data that will be analysed with statistical factor approaches and plotted to verify the hypothesis of existence of few families and groups of walking styles.
Dancers and non-dancers in Istanbul participated as test subjects on the 15th and 16th of April 2009 at E4-302 in santralistanbul.
