Mind Music Machine Lab @ ACM Magazine Interactions

Immersive Interactive Sonification Project

The Mind Music Machine (tri-M) Lab is a transdisciplinary research group based in Cognitive Science and Computer Science at Michigan TechMind is our ultimate research theme. Music is our language and methodology to work with. Machinery is our research tool and an analogy of mind. The research goal of the lab is understanding the mechanisms of the human mind and designing better interactions between people and technologies. To this end, we use various instruments: computer vision technologies, display wall, digital audio workstation, driving simulators, neurophysiological equipment, robots and toys. The current research projects include dancer-sonification in the immersive virtual environment, creating live theatre play with multiple robots as actors, affective computing for drivers of autonomous vehicles, assistive technologies for the blind and older adults, social robots for children with autism, sonically-enhanced in-vehicle gesture interactions, etc.
