A new remote presence system, bragging of a 17-inch LCD display and reliable wireless connection due to four Wi-Fi radios, has been developed by Suitable Technologies. All the operator needs is an internet-connected Windows PC or Mac, a webcam, and microphone.The robot features two cameras, allowing the operator to avoid obstacles that are too low for the primary camera to catch: one gives the operator a wide-angle view of the device’s surroundings and another looks directly in front of its mobile base. A microphone array provides high quality audio that allows conversing even at a noisy site. The Beam is priced at US$16,000 (plus an extra $950 for its charging dock), such a high price ensures it insecure position in the list of the similar products, Beam is its ability to stay connected; in our early testing, we learned that it’s not that difficult to build a remote presence device that keeps a wireless connection 70-80 percent of the time but that absolutely won’t cut it for an enterprise-class product. Nobody wants their connection to be suddenly cut short during an important meeting.”
