YuMi Robot Opera in Italy

We have already covered a bunch of robots capable of playing music. They can also be used to conduct an opera. A YuMi collaborative dual-arm robot is being prepared to debut as conductor at the Teatro Verdi in Pisa, Italy.

As Andrea Colombini explains:

my movements were captured with a process called “lead-through programming,” where the robot’s two arms are guided to follow my motions with great attention to detail; these movements are then recorded. The second step involved fine-tuning the movements in ABB’s RobotStudio software, where we made sure the motions were synchronized to the music.
