Double 3 Telepresence robot from Double Robotics
Double 3 is a self-driving, two-wheeled videoconferencing robot that revolutionizes the way you work or learn remotely. Double enables telecommuters, remote workers, and students to feel more connected to their colleagues by giving them a physical presence where they can???t be in person. Driving your own Double means you are free to roam around the office, attend meetings, visit work sites, or go to class from anywhere in the world.
Colleges & Universities - Double is being used in higher education in many ways, including building hybrid classrooms with both online and in-person students, to enable professors to continue teaching when they move out of state, and even in library services for giving remote tours and showcasing innovative technology.
Homebound Students - Bringing the rich learning environment of a classroom to a homebound or hospitalized student can be very difficult. Double enables the remote student to join the classroom in realtime, interact with other students one-on-one, and participate in group discussion. The telepresence robot is a revolutionary tool for homebound students.
An array of 3D sensors enables Double 3 to understand its environment, where it???s safe to drive, and how to divert around obstacles to reach the destination. Built-in obstacle avoidance means that completely untrained drivers can drive Double 3 without fear of bumping into walls or people. Now you can give virtual tours of your facility to new customers who have never been there before! Driving down hallways and through narrow doorways is a breeze with automatic assisted driving correction.
We have completely re-imagined the Double 3 driving experience. Simply click anywhere on the floor in front of you, and your Double will drive there, avoiding obstacles along the way. Because Double understands where it is safe to move, you no longer need to focus on the act of driving.
Your camera view is enhanced with virtual 3D objects that highlight driveable areas, obstacles, and important places like your Charging Dock. This type of enhanced view is commonly referred to as Mixed Reality. Mixed Reality is like Augmented Reality, except virtual 3D objects are added into the live video stream, and they look and behave as if they are placed in the real world.
Mixed Reality is like Augmented Reality, except virtual 3D objects are added into the video stream, and they look like they are placed in the real world. They help you understand what your Double can see, and they highlight important waypoints and objects of interest, such as the Charging Dock.
Two 13 Megapixel cameras provide an ultra wide field of view and multiple levels of zoom. The cameras can physically tilt up and down, which is helpful for reading papers on a desk or zooming into a specific point. An advanced software algorithm combines all of the movement into one seamless user experience -- you just point to what you want to see. You can read everything -- from paperwork on a desk in front of you, to the whiteboard across the room.
Six Beamforming Microphones
An advanced array of six microphones helps the driver hear people from farther away and with less background noise. The integrated audio system enables full-duplex audio (two-way simultaneous audio) to be more robust in challenging environments.
Improving Upon Double 2
Double 3 is fully integrated hardware. No iPad installation, Bluetooth pairing, or accessories are required, making setup much easier. Simply install the Double 3 Head onto the robot base with the one bolt, and it just works. Additionally, thanks to obstacle avoidance, driving is now safer, easier, and more reliable.
A Developer API enables customized applications to be built for Double. Modular subsystems allow developers to choose which features they need for their application. The tiered architecture provides hooks to sensor data and autonomous features at various levels. Various expansion ports and mounting points allow additional hardware to be added. Learn more
Forward Thinking and Backwards Compatible
Double 3 is designed with future features in mind. Over-the-air updates will enable new features over time. The Double 3 Head is also backwards compatible with the older Double 2 robot base.
