BotEyes is revolutionizing the way work is done remotely or over a distance. By placing telepresence robots in offices and factories, workers can be in more places at once and save money on travel expenses.
The market for telepresence robots is expected to increase 15.3 percent through 2028 and reach $684 million. Fueled by a global economy that has products being developed in one country and manufactured in another — and by the growing shift to remote and hybrid workplaces — robots such as BotEyes are connecting teams in ways previously unseen.
BotEyes features a sturdy but streamlined base that can move in all directions and is equipped with sensors to avoid objects. A tall adjustable handle holds a tablet used as the robot’s face, giving it full audio and video capabilities. The robot can be controlled remotely with any device and is compatible with any computer, phone, tablet, or operating system.
The robot head can be tilted 340 degrees and hold a tablet vertically or horizontally. Users can zoom in, switch from front to rear camera, share their screen, and take a video or photos. BotEyes is foldable for easy storage and can maneuver over doorsteps up to 1.5 centimeters tall.
Telepresence robots bring workplaces together
BotEyes has a myriad of uses in the workplace. For example, managers and executives can visit remote offices in different cities, states, or countries anytime and without assistance. They can also give customers an inside look at their manufacturing facility without leaving the office. In addition, the device offers managers a way to monitor production at off-site locations to ensure essential procedures are being followed.
Uses for BotEyes go beyond manufacturing. In the healthcare industry, for instance, doctors can use the robot to conduct virtual rounds when checking on patients. By reducing how often doctors commute from their clinics to hospitals, practices can increase efficiencies and see more cases.
The telepresence robot also connects remote workers to their in-office colleagues. Through the device, telecommuters are no longer confined to a static monitor but can instead navigate BotEyes throughout the office. It also gives remote workers a seat at the conference table with their peers so they can turn and look at specific people or items and interact as though they were in person. This is an excellent way to help hybrid teams bond.
BotEyes telepresence robots have broad uses across industries and enable workers to connect with colleagues worldwide instantly and without the expense of traveling.
