In December 2012, I participated to the first edition of the Rob|Arch symposium in Wien, organized by the Association for Robots in Architecture. This participation was divided into two events: workshops with robots, and a series of lectures.
During my lecture, I presented the design strategy I used to build HAL 004 and the new development objectives relative to this software: improvements of the real-time control interface, support for multiple robot brands, support for external axis, etc. I also gave a quick demonstration of the TouchOSC-based HAL interface for iPad and iPhone.

Below, the paper presented during this symposium.
