Our Approach to Telepresence
We use Arduino open source micro controllers to power our robots. These controllers are reliable, versatile and easy to program. Arduino controllers are part of a physical computing platform that includes the Arduino IDE (Integrated Development Environment) which simplifies software development. The Arduino IDE can be downloaded at: http://arduino.cc/en/main/software.
Most wireless devices such as smartphones, tablets and the iPod Touch 4/5 are compatible with RoboMetrix control system.
All popular video chat apps are also compatible with our robot control system. This compatibility, along with our broad hardware compatibility, makes our telepresence robots the most versatile available.
Our robots are hand-built in Pennsylvania using domestic and imported parts. Where possible, we outsource component manufacturing to local companies.
