The basic concepts for exoskeletal systems have been suggested for some time with applications ranging from construction, manufacturing and mining to rescue and emergency services. In recent years, research has been driven by possible uses in medical/rehabilitation and military applications. Yet there are still significant barriers to the effective use and(More)
Recent advances in multimedia systems and robotics encourage the development of novel types of applications that associate the use of various multimedia objects with the behavior of multiple robotic actors. Unfortunately, the development of such systems is hampered by the lack of appropriate authoring and execution environments. This paper seeks to fill(More)
