Entry Level Telepresence at an Affordable Price
Do you want to get telepresence capability for your home or office without the worry of losing the connection during the call? Or perhaps you are more worried that you may too easily crash into an infant or run over a stray cat? If you have either of these concerns, the TableTop TeleMe telepresence robot may work well for you! Just set the TeleMe in an area covered by strong WiFi and you will have no worries.
The MantaroBot TableTop TeleMe can be set on any level surface and used as a stationary telepresence robot. Remote users can log into the TableTop TeleMe robot via the MantaroBot control application and an audio/video-conferencing app such as Skype, FaceTime, Vidyo, or Google Hangouts, and view all of the robot’s surroundings as if they were there in person. The base of the robot includes powered speakers and a microphone that connects to the tablet via Bluetooth.
The TableTop TeleMe’s view can be controlled by the remote user which provides more efficient and enhanced participation and communication. Remote users are able to log in to the TableTop TeleMe robot via a PC, Mac, or most any other device with a modern web-browser and a network connection. While viewing the remote location the user can control the telepresence robot’s view through a downloaded control application that communicates with the TableTop TeleMe through a direct socket, MantaroBot Communications Service (a cloud-based service where an additional fee may be required), or a WebRTC connection. The remote user may choose to use MantaroBot’s web-based controller, the MantaroBot TeleGo. Additionally, MantaroBot has a Controller for Android so both Android Phones and Tablets can be used to drive their telepresence robots.
Aside from turning on the robot, the TableTop TeleMe requires no local supervision. Settings in many video-conferencing apps allow remote users to log in directly to the application and start receiving video images, so there does not need to be a person at the robot’s location that must log in to Skype. This “auto-response” feature makes viewing something remotely far more convenient for remote users unavailable to travel to a location. Remote users can participate in business meetings, visit or check-in on family members, view distant warehouses, or attend gatherings thousands of miles away.
