Ava 500

"iRobot is excited to partner with Cisco in bringing this next generation of telepresence to businesses worldwide.”
— Youssef Saleh, VP & GM, iRobot’s Remote Presence Business Unit
"From the browser to the boardroom, Cisco is committed to improving communications, relationships, and productivity by helping people meet face-to-face over distances. The iRobot Ava 500 is a perfect example of using Cisco’s portfolio of high-definition video collaboration solutions to innovate and expand the reach of telepresence."
— Snorre Kjesbu, VP & GM Cisco


""FDA clearance of a robot that can move safely and independently through a fast-paced, chaotic and demanding hospital environment is a significant technological milestone for the robotics and healthcare industries. Having crossed this technology threshold, the potential for self-navigating robots in other markets, and for new applications, is virtually limitless."
— Colin Angle, iRobot CEO
"This is the first FDA clearance for a navigating robot. It’s approved for emergency use and will be used in life and death situations before other uses. Just as early cell phones were used in emergencies before becoming ubiquitous."
— Yulun Wang, InTouch Health CEO
""The RP-VITA is a boon for doctors; apart from letting specialists anywhere in the world communicate with patients, it also has data ports that connect to digital stethoscopes, otoscopes, and ultrasound imaging."
"The new technology enables me to concentrate on caring for my patient without being distracted by the need to set up and manage its technological features"

Ava Mobile Robotics Platform

"So much of robotics has to do with physical motion – navigation around our environment and doing increasingly high-level tasks – it makes these two initial markets (of military and home cleaning) seem pedestrian versus the dream of what’s possible."
— Colin Angle, iRobot CEO
"Now, with Ava, [iRobot] is using video and computing advances to create robots that can do office work remotely and perhaps one day handle more of the household chores."
"Ava’s height isn’t her only standout feature. She is also intelligent, as her iPad (or Google Android tablet) brain can be augmented with apps. Currently she knows how to map unfamiliar locations – using sensors and a video camera – and navigate around them."
