The field where Hangar has developed more applied research projects so far has been in robotics with the development of tailored technological tools for artistic projects. Being Hangar committed to free and accessible hardware and software, this research line explores the possibilities of open tools such as Arduino, Pure Data or Processing for the development of electronics, programming and hardware prototypes according with the needs of the projects of the users of Hangar's interaction lab. Some of the applications developed within this research line framework are related with real time data processing, sensors, automatisation and remote control.
