Visualisation: VAMOS – Real-time evaluation of complex signals with motion analysis of humanoid robots as example
Ingo Boesnach/Universität Karlsruhe, Jörg Moldenhauer/Universität Karlsruhe

VAMOS is a modular software framework for real-time visualisation, analysis and modelling of signals. It provides a platform upon which software components can be graphically linked and executed. It regulates the exchange of data between modules and supervises the distribution of hardware resources. VAMOS consists of a set of standard modules, each of which can be supplemented with its own modules, thus enabling efficient software development from prototype to complex applications. The system is able to link complex data types while employing efficient storage management, universal exchange ports and an intuitive user interface. Following a technical description, VAMOS will be demonstrated using human motion analysis data, encompassing the complete data flow from the input of motion data to the potential control application of a humanoid robot.


Ingo Boesnach graduated in Computer Science at Universität Karlsruhe (TH) in 2000. Since then he has been working as a scientist at the Institute for Algorithms and Cognitive Systems (IAKS) in the department “Motion Analysis” formerly led by Professor Th. Beth at Universität Karlsruhe (TH). He is currently a member of the special research group 588 "Humanoid Robots - learning and co-operating multi-modal robots" of the German Research Council (DFG). Ingo Boesnach is author and co-author of 15 scientific publications and conference proceedings. His research focus lies on picture and signal processing, adaptive models and optimization.


Jörg Moldenhauer graduated in Computer Science at Universität Karlsruhe (TH), Germany, in 1999. Since then he has been a researcher at the Institute for Algorithms and Cognitive Systems (IAKS) in the medical imaging and motion analysis group of the late Prof. Th. Beth at Universität Karlsruhe, Germany. He worked on projects in the Collaborative Research Centre 414 ”Information Technology in Medicine – Computer and Sensor Supported Surgery” of the German Research Council (DFG). He is member of the Collaborative Research Center 588 ”Humanoid Robots – Learning and Cooperation Multimodal Robots” of the DFG. Jörg Moldenhauer is the author and co-author of 21 technical publications and proceedings. His research interests include image and signal processing, feature generation, data modeling and data analysis.

Universität Karlsruhe

At the Institute for Algorithms and Cognitive Systems (IAKS) at Universität Karlsruhe (TH), the presenters are part of a work group formerly headed by the late Professor Th. Beth. The special research group 588 "Humanoid Robots - learning and co-operating multi-modal robots " in Karlsruhe deals with the analysis of human movements for recognition and transmission to humanoid robots. The developers of VAMOS are currently founding a company with the intent of distributing the software commercially.
