ABB's YuMi Robot Takes Center Stage in Pisa, Conducts Andrea Bocelli and Lucca Symphony Orchestra

ZURICH–(BUSINESS WIRE)–YuMi, the world’s first truly collaborative dual-arm robot, made its
debut at the opera on Tuesday (Sept. 12) by conducting Italian tenor
Andrea Bocelli and the Lucca Philharmonic Orchestra at the Teatro Verdi
in Pisa. YuMi, which is manufactured by Swiss technology pioneer ABB,
was invited to the stage by Mr. Bocelli, who performed the famous aria
“La Donna è Mobile” from Verdi’s Rigoletto. YuMi also conducted works of
Puccini and Mascagni during its first night at the opera in front of a
sold-out Teatro. Among the guests was ABB CEO Ulrich Spiesshofer, under
whose leadership YuMi was developed. The unique demonstration showed
what can happen when advanced robotics meets the arts.
