CSAIL Robots Take Center Stage

Bookmark and Share

Two flying robots developed in Professor Daniela Rus’ Distributed Robotics Lab are enjoying some time in the spotlight this summer as they perform at the Joyce Theater with the modern dance company Pilobolus. In a piece called “Seraph,” the two robots interact with a dancer during an exploration of the human-machine relationship, set to a selection from Schubert’s Trio No. 2 in E flat.

Rus and current and former PhD students William Selby, Brian Julian, Daniel Soltero, Andrew Marchese and Carrick Detweiler worked in collaboration with Pilobolus to develop the piece, which will run through August 6.
