Angel -  Is a Telepresence Robot that can be used to do video calling and navigation at the same time. While the least expensive telepresence robot in current market costs at least $2500 we managed to make it for $250.  This huge achievement was a result of long hours spent by a team of 3 members (and a lot of help from our colleagues) , thinking and trying out different possibilities to achieve this dream.



The controller will require two device ( one for making the video call, and one for controlling the device navigation). It's navigation control is done in javascript, so it can be controlled from any device/pc browser. The dashboard sample can be found here http://angelrobotics.appspot.com . It's advantage from other solutions is the support for multiple video calling apps like Skype, Hangout, Fring, Imo etc.

Navigation signals are passed from a remote user to the smartphone (via internet) mounted on the Angel's navigation unit. The received signals are converted into bluetooths signals by the smartphone and send to the circuit board's that control the wheel movement.

Most Helpful When :

  • Managing geographically distributed workforce
  • Assist people with disabilities when the carer has to work at a distance
  • Doctors can consult patients remotely can assist surgeries  
  • To add emotional expressiveness, engagement and playfulness with video calls
