ANYmal carries an onboard microphone with which music can be perceived. The beat of the music is analyzed and a suitable sequence of dance motions is choreographed. The desired and real motion trajectories are compared such that the delay between music and motion can be minimized.

Big thanks to Mr. & Mrs. Cello, Massimiliano Martinelli and Fulvia Mancini!
