"A Highly Flexible Robot that Works with Skype"
MantaroBot: Classic 2 Robot Summary
The Classic 2 has been discontinued. MantaroBot is focusing their efforts on the TeleMe 2 telepresence robot. Click here to view the TeleMe 2!
The MantaroBot Classic 2 telepresence robot is essentially designed for Skype conferencing, but can be used with other applications such as Microsoft Lync and applications that require HIPAA compliance. The Classic 2 robot allows the user to interact with people and their environment through Skype and experience more interactive communication. The Classic 2 uses an HD pan/tilt camera, a microphone, speakers, and a 16” LCD display. Through a wireless connection, the telepresence robot can be moved around the room in order to observe other meeting participants and presentations; providing the user a virtual presence.
The Classic 2 robot can be operated via Android devices by downloading the MantaraBot Controller for Android app from the Google Play store and via personal computers using one of three modes; two of which are free of charge. The two free options include an app (titled "Web RTC") that plugs into Skype or a direct socket connection. Alternatively, users my use the MantaroBot Communications Service for a monthly fee.
Any user who has internet access is able to control the MantaroBot Classic 2. Onsite personnel do not need to supervise the Classic 2 robot while in operation. The only action required is to initially power-up the system. When a Skype connection is established, the user is able to control the MantaroBot through the use of the MantaroBot Controller software. This allows the user to control the pan/tilt camera, the motorized mast, the movement and the laser pointer. Since this is a software control system, it means that the user doesn't require any specialized joysticks or controllers, but can use one if they choose. It is merely controlled via a pc through the internet connection. The Classic 2 robot uses infrared obstacle detection which allows the user to confidently move the robot around a room without concern of crashing. Onsite users can interact easily with the Classic 2 as the developers, MantaroBot, have added a near-silent driving mechanism to the robot, which enables even more clear communication than users had with its predecessor, the first Mantarobot Classic robot.
