A painting robot – level 1

01-05-2024 15:00

FRIDA is a robot. It can paint. It has an arm. A brush is attached to the arm.

An operator tells FRIDA his idea about what to paint. The robot makes a plan. It prepares the right colors. A camera is checking the robot’s work. It is okay if the robot makes a mistake. It includes the mistake in the painting. Artists do the same.

It is hard to say if FRIDA is a painter or not. Painters watch and listen to the world around them. This gives them ideas about what to paint. FRIDA does a similar thing.

Difficult words: attached (connected to something), operator (a person who uses a machine), include (to have something smaller as a part of it).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

"What role does FRIDA's camera play in its painting process and how does it differ from a human artist's approach?"
