iRobot Corporation and Cisco TelePresence Suites LLC Sign joint marketing agreement
Jun 10 13
iRobot Corp. announced that the company has signed a joint marketing agreement and is working in close alliance with Cisco to bring the enterprise-grade iRobot Ava 500 video collaboration robot to market. The robot blends together iRobot's autonomous navigation with Cisco's TelePresence to enable people working off-site to participate in meetings and presentations where movement and location spontaneity are important. The new robot is also designed to enable mobile visual access to manufacturing facilities, laboratories, customer experience centers and other remote facilities in a supply chain. Ava(TM) 500 Video Collaboration robot combines iRobot's autonomous navigation with Cisco's TelePresence to allow executives to attend meetings, meet with colleagues and tour facilities from a distance. With Ava 500, a remote worker sitting in front of a standards-based video collaboration system can meet with colleagues in an office setting or take part in experiences, like a facility tour, that would otherwise be difficult or impossible from afar. It enables a remote user in New York to travel the halls, meeting with colleagues in Paris, Hong Kong and San Francisco "on the fly" just as he or she would if physically in that location. To create Ava 500, iRobot enhanced its Ava mobile robotics platform with Cisco's TelePresence EX60 personal video endpoint. Used by thousands of workers globally, this endpoint has traditionally been a desktop solution. By mounting the EX60's 21.5-inch HD resolution screen atop the mobile robotics platform, the solution builds on the values of telepresence by extending the "power of in-person" beyond fixed environments enabling freedom of movement, location spontaneity and the embodiment of the remote user thousands of miles away. The remote user schedules and controls Ava 500 using a familiar iPad(R) interface, selecting his or her destination by tapping a location on a map or by choosing a room or employee name. An available robot is then activated to "take" the user where they want to go. The user can choose whether to make the trip from the charging station to selected location in either "private" mode where the screen appears blank or in "public" mode where the user's face is displayed. If public mode is chosen, the user can see and be seen, and even stop to have an ad-hoc hallway conversation with a colleague. When the session is complete, the Ava 500 automatically returns to its charging station. Key differentiators of Ava 500 include: Autonomous navigation. Ava 500 employs "autonomous navigation," which means there is no need to "drive" the robot, so it requires little training to operate and the user is free to concentrate on the task at hand. iRobot's mobile robotics platform maps its own environment so it can intelligently and safely self-navigate busy, real-world enterprise environments like offices, manufacturing floors and laboratories without bumping into people or objects; Interoperability and enterprise-grade security. Ava 500 uses both the Cisco TelePresence EX60 personal unit and Cisco Aironet 1600 Series wireless access points to enable enterprise-grade security and interoperability in any standards-based video collaboration environment. Primary anticipated uses; Ava 500 is specifically intended for the enterprise market. Use cases include: Remote team collaboration: allows those working off-site to more personally participate within highly collaborative teams; Executive management: the robot allows those managing satellite teams to be more personally present and able to move throughout an office environment; Tours and inspections: allows mobile access to areas including manufacturing facilities, labs, customer experience centers and supply chain facilities; Remote corporate training/presentations: the robot allows for a more personal and interactive approach to remote corporate training and presentations, where the instructor can approach and have 1:1 discussions with individual students. Ava 500 is targeted for availability from select Cisco partners in early calendar year 2014.
