The MantaroBot TeleMe™ TelePresence Robot is a mobile platform where you can plug in your own Apple® iPad®, iPhone® 4/4s or Android™ Tablet. The TeleMe is plugged into Skype™ and allows a user to remotely interact with co-workers and associates and their environment. The telepresence system provides a level of interactivity which is not present with traditional “call-in” video conference.  The user can move around the room and observe participants through the tablet’s camera, allowing more effective communication. The user will be able to view live activities, meetings or hold one-on-one meetings.  Provided they have a Windows PC and an Internet connection, any user can access the TeleMe TelePresence Robot. 

The TeleMe requires no supervision excluding initial power-on. Onsite participants are able to communicate with the offsite user through the Tablet’s built in microphone, speaker, display, and camera. Bluetooth headphones (not included) can be used in noisy environments. The robot is based around an embedded computer that controls the movements. The TeleMe is Wi-Fi enabled and communicates with a wireless router. Skype runs on the embedded computer and on the tablet providing high quality audio and video. A control interface runs on the user’s computer allowing full control of the TeleMe and completes the video call-in platform. The TeleMe also features the ability to tilt the tablet up/down via the control interface providing a wide visual range and acuity. It can also pan the tablet head left or right with the optional mast with pan capability accessory.

MantaroBot™ Control User Interface

The MantaroBot TeleMe is controlled by the remote user via a control application that communicates with the TeleMe whenever a Skype connection to the TeleMe is established. The control interface is designed as a small control panel that provides separate control interfaces for the movement of the TeleMe and pan/tilt of the tablet’s integral camera.
