Telepresence Robots for several applications!
A telepresence robot is a remote-controlled, wheeled or tracked device that has wireless internet connectivity. Typically, the robot uses a tablet to provide video and audio capabilities to the remote user.
Nowadays, Telepresence robots are widely used to stand in for tour guides, night watchmen, factory inspectors and healthcare consultants. In a distance education class, a telepresence robot can move around the room and interact face-to-face with individual students. In business, a telepresence robot can be used to help an employee whose disability or location prevents him from traveling still have a physical presence in the office. More in general, telepresence robots allow people to move virtually through a distant building by remotely controlling a wheeled robot equipped with a camera, microphone, loudspeaker and screen displaying live video of its pilot’s face. They are also very useful to explore dangerous places and, for example, check the physical conditions of injured soldiers on military fields.
