UVA Stage Robot
Andy was tapped by Professor Steve Warner of the UVA Drama Department to assist with the finalization of a stage robot designed to automatically move platforms safely around the stage with easily programmable cues. Joining the project in Fall 2018 as a student software developer, Andy has worked with the team to design and code a front end for users to easily control and program the robot, and he has created a few supporting data structures. Andy has also evaluated potential hardware choices for the final draft of the machine, which is set to debut at USITT 2019. Andy looks forward to presenting this robot at the conference.
