Telepresence is the perception of presence within a physically remote or simulated site.
A telepresence mobile robot is a remote-controlled, wheeled device with wireless internet connectivity for bidirectional audio, video and data transmission.
These systems, which were primarily used in the context of promoting social interaction between people, have now become increasingly popular within certain application domains such as health care environments, independent living for the elderly, office environments, RnD collaboration and Manufacturing Plant process monitoring. Recently, TP robots have found applications in working environments where humans cannot work continuously eg: cold storage depots.
By virtue of internet penetration with 4G quality, the go-live lead time of these robots in hours.
TP robots can be effectively used in plant process inspections and work well in clean room scenarios.
