My PhD supervisor is now spending 10 months at a US research center and it means we have to work remotely and also organize meetings via Skype and other communication channels. Well, regarding clinics, it might work. The prototype was created and designed by RoboDynamics.
Our robot TiLR is world’s first commercial Telepresence Robot which radically change the way people can work remotely by increasing throughput while simultaneously decreasing costs.
A remote worker would uses the robot as her physical avatar in the remote location. The net effect is that the remote worker performs exactly as she is there in person – which makes robotic telepresence unlike any other collaboration solution in existence today.
