e-David Robot Painting
Published on July 14, 2013
e-David, created by a team at the University of Konstanz, Germany, is a painter robot . e-David is an artistically inclined robot that uses special software to process its work on the fly to decide where to add the next brush stroke.
e-David, them painting machine, uses visual feedback to create different kinds of paintings. They equipped a standard robot with all necessary means for painting. Five different brushes can be used, color can be selected from a repository with 24 colors, brushes can be cleaned and colors can be distributed precisely on the canvas.
The machine watches itself while painting and decides independently where to add new strokes. This way paintings are created that are not completely defined by the programmer but are the result of a visual optimization process.
