Double Robotics Telepresence Robots Feature Live Video
Double Robotics leverages the real-time video and voice capabilities of the Vonage Video API Platform to enhance its telepresence robot so that users can move around and collaborate remotely.
ChallengeDouble Robotics wanted to enable interactions that were more realistic for remote workers overseas, and help children attend class even when they can’t make it there in person.

ResultsBy combining Vonage's real-time video with their advanced robotics, Double Robotics created a simple and elegant way to be somewhere else in the world.
Double Robotics offers telepresence robots that enable more true-to-life remote collaboration experiences. They created the Double Robot, an ultra-slick iPad on wheels controlled via remote web interface or from any iOS device.
Today, we often have to be somewhere else in the world, whether it’s a meeting across the city or an office on the other side of the world. But it’s not always possible, or affordable, to get there.
Double Robotics wanted to allow workers to interact more realistically with their workers overseas, and children to be able to have a physical presence in the classroom, even when they can’t make it there in person.
Why Vonage Video API?
By combining Vonage's real-time video with their advanced robotics, Double Robotics created a simple and elegant way to be somewhere else in the world.
The Vonage Video API platform powers video streams between Double Robotics users, integrating seamlessly into the robot's interface. Double Robotics users can even keep the robot at eye level by adjusting the height remotely, which helps make conversations more fluid and real.
Double Robotics CEO David Cann said "Low-latency, high-quality, encrypted video is a top priority for our product. Vonage's WebRTC SDK is the only solution that meets and exceeds all of these requirements on both iOS and the web. The Vonage Video API Platform helps deliver a better user experience to our customers!"
"We built our product around the Vonage Video API platform because it was, and continues to be, the best and most innovative WebRTC platform. Without Vonage's developer-friendly and flexible Vonage Video API SDK, we would not be able to offer many of the key features of our driving interface."
