This paper describes a method to generate stroke trajectories executed by a 5-DOF robotic art system. A brush footprint model is proposed to represent the footprint outline, which is sensitive to the applied stress. After extracting real brush footprints from experiments, the model parameters are obtained using linear regression. Trajectories are searched along the segmented strokes of Chinese characters by varying the shape of brush footprint. The generated trajectory is 5-DOF, which is compatible to the robot art system. Simulations and experiments were conducted using calligraphy of Bada Shanren, a famous Chinese ancient artist, as an example.
