Cisco and iRobot have developed the Ava 500 robot, a device that blends autonomous navigation and telepresence to enable remote workers to participate in meetings and presentations. They can meet with colleagues in an office setting or take part in a tour.

The 21.5″ HD resolution screen on top of a mobile robotics platform enables freedom of movement, location spontaneity and the embodiment of a user potentially thousands of miles away. Controlled using an iPad, Ava 500 allows employees to see a remote person face-to-face.
