Sanbot Elf Summary

The Sanbot Elf telepresence robot (formerly known as the Sanbot S1) provides you a physical, remote presence, enabling you to visit family, co-workers, hospital patients, and others instantly and efficiently.  The Sanbot Elf is controlled using an application called Qlink, which can be downloaded to either your smartphone, tablet, or PC.  Business and hospitals can use the Sanbot to project documents such as Excel and PowerPoint files, as well as other documents and videos.  Similarly, the Sanbot Elf can use it's projector and it's 65" image display to broadcast movies.  The Sanbot Elf has built-in subwoofers, touch sensors, and HD touch screen, infrared sensors for autonomous navigation and crash detection, and even a 3D camera in addition to its normal HD camera. 

Home users are using Sanbot telepresence robots to visit their family and friends instantly, to eliminate time and expenses and hassles associated with many traveling experiences.  

Business users are using telepresence robots to instantly meet with coworkers or to check product placement on sales floors or in warehouses.

Hospital users are using telepresence robots to enable specialists to immediately be on hand for emergencies such as when a person has a stroke.  They also enable clinics to offer a simple way for family members and friends of patients to visit with their loved ones with no worries of germs.  Friends and family simply access the telepresence robot at the hospital, or have a member of the staff drive the robot to the patient's room.

The Sanbot Elf can also be used for customer service.  Visitors to your business or hospital or museum can ask the Sanbot for directions and basic questions. 

Auto-Docking:  The Sanbot can be programmed to automatically charge itself once its battery level reaches a particular percentage (i.e. 10%, 20$, etc).  Additionally, you can tell the Sanbot to charge itself using your voice or via the Qlink app. 

What do the remote users need?: The Sanbot can be controlled using a PC, smartphone, or tablet.

What else can it do?  It can play a video or programmed presentation using it's screen or it's built-in projector.  Use the Sanbot Elf to display excel and PowerPoint files, videos, and other documents.  The Sanbot can change colors and interact with people using its voice and facial recognition and ability to respond to questions.  The Sanbot can even dance; mind you, you'll not see much of a resemblance with Fred Astaire or Ginger Rogers, but the Sanbot gets a big "E" for effort.  Returning to more practical levels, thanks to its adaptability to customization, the Sanbot can be tailored for use in hotel, retail, healthcare, education, and other industries.
