Telepresence. Case: AVA 500

 iRobot Ava 500iRobot Corporation, builds on the values of telepresence by extending the “power of in-person” beyond fixed environments – enabling the user freedom of movement and to establish a physical presence. It allows for conversations to continue outside of offices and conference rooms – into the hallways and other locations. Available Early 2014.

Applications

iRobot Ava 500 is ideal when freedom of movement and physical presence are needed to achieve an even more personal degree of collaboration within a globally dispersed workforce. Examples include:

• Remote team collaboration: allows those working off-site to more personally participate within highly collaborative teams

• Executive management: provides managers of satellite teams to be more personally present and able to move throughout an office environment

• Tours and inspections: delivering mobile presence to areas including manufacturing facilities, labs, customer experience centers and supply chain facilities

• Remote corporate training and presentations: enables a more personal and interactive approach to remote corporate training and presentations
