"Enterprise Level, High-End Robotic Telepresence"
Ava 500 Summary
Are you looking to save money on travel and have greater flexibility in your work?
CEOs and other business executives are saving thousands of dollars each year by employing the Ava 500 business telepresence robot.
The Ava 500 provides a more commanding presence when you are unable to attend a remote conference, meeting, or lecture, or to meet with workers at a manufacturing plant, warehouse, or training facility. Telepresence enables you to save thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours per year that would otherwise be spent on flights, hotels, and related travel expenses.
The Ava 500 robot has been highlighted as a "video collaboration robot" which can enable corporations to have a greater presence in and at manufacturing plants, warehouses, corporate training and management events, and any other remote locations. Some of the more common applications include: remote training, presentations, or technical support, where an expert can be on location in seconds; tours and inspections of business facitilies, labs, museums, and so on.
Executives can benefit greatly from the Ava 500 through its ability to provide users freedom of movement and a virtual (remote) presence. As mentioned in the preceding paragraph, whether employers wish to inspect a manufacturing plant or warehouse, participate in corporate training, inspect labs or other rooms, or merely interact with employees, the Ava 500 enables them to efficiently engage and control what is seen without the need for spending time and money on travelling to the remote location and related costs.
Additionally, the Ava 500 includes Obstacle Detection and Obstacle Avoidance capabilities. A laser, 3D imaging, and sonar technologies help the robot navigate autonomously throughout business environments without bumping into anything; users simply take advantage of the advanced mapping feature, select their destination, and the Ava 500 will connect with the user upon its arrival. The Ava 500 also includes the ability to lower or raise the screen, which allows people at the Ava robot's location to more comfortably engage with the remote user (the person operating the robot) while either standing or sitting.
