Availle mostly records books and short works, but every now and then something else pops up...

Availle's projects outside of LibriVox

Recently, Availle has been approached to read the narration for two videos on robot motion planning. As she would do (almost) anything to promote science, of course she jumped at the opportunity. Check those videos out below!

Triangulating Unknown Environments using Robot Swarms

By A. Becker, S. P. Fekete, A. Kröller, S. Lee, J. McLurkin, C. Schmidt

A video contribution for the 29th Symposium on Computational Geometry (SoCG) 2013

This video shows how swarms of inexpensive robots can be employed to explore an unknown area. Two algorithms are shown, the first for the (theoretical) setting of an unbounded robot supply. The second algorithm explains a heuristic for the case of a limited amount of robots. The theory is topped off with scenes of little, cute, real robots executing the second algorithm.

Point Guards and Point Clouds: Solving General Art Gallery Problems

by D. Borrmann, P. J. de Rezende, C. C. de Souza, S. P. Fekete, S. Friedrichs, A. Kröller. A. Nüchter, C. Schmidt, D. C. Tozoni

A video contribution for the 29th Symposium on Computational Geometry (SoCG) 2013

In this video, the robot IRMA moves around and scans its environment to produce three dimensional images. As the scanning process is time consuming, the goal is to find a minimum number of scan positions that together provide a full view of the environment. For this, an intricate linear programming approach that switches between the primal and dual problems, is presented.

Derivatives of Availle's LibriVox recordings

All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain and thus can be used freely for all purposes without permission. Here is how Availle's LibriVox recordings have been used. For example...

... a part of Availle's solo The Early History of the Airplane...

... has been used by Joonas Kreen for his new album "My Luvly Hammock".


Listen to a short sample of Takeoff by Joonas Kreen, featuring Availle.


Actually, the whole album is great - check it out at Joonas Kreen's homepage
