Madeline the Robot Tamer

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.
