The system as it exists now is not meant to be a
final product, but a proof of concept for a much
larger system controlling 30-40 mobile robots. Our
intention was to explore three main questions to
determine the feasibility of this large scale
robotic control problem and its relation to the
1. Can we get suitably precise and reliable
positioning using the Vicon tracking system?
2. Is it feasible to choreograph the movements many
robots using a 3D animation?
3. Can we imbue simple robots with interesting and
compelling behavior suitable for a stage
Thus far we have had success with all of these
issues and are beginning to test the system on a
