During her residency at Pier 9, Madeline Gannon developed a project called Quipt – a gesture-based control software that gives industrial robots basic spatial behaviors for interacting closely with people. Wearable markers and a motion capture system let the robot see and respond to you in a shared space. This lets you and the robot safely follow, mirror, and avoid one another as you collaborate together.

See more of how Madeline developed Quipt on her instructable here – Instructables.com/id/How-to-Tame-Your-Robot/

  1. I have worked with these robots before, watching this is frightening. These are powerful and fast robots. At full speed the safety systems will not save your life. One software glitch and it will kill you. I’ve see one punch a hole in a wall because the wrong value was typed in. This is extremely dangerous!
