Programming and Using Telepresence Robot at RVC

Rock Valley College sent out below news release at the end of November about the “Double Robot” coming to campus:

The robot has arrived and I am prepping for use in my iOS Development Course for Spring 2015 semester. The robot uses the iPad as it’s controller. The robot allows users to use a Chrome web browser or iOS app to remote control the robot and use what is called telepresence. The person controlling the robot has the ability to roam anywhere the want and converse face to face with an individual, classroom, or group meeting. The robot has an controllable telescopic arm that allows the iPad to be at sitting or standing level.

If interested in learning how to program iOS apps like the one that controls the robot then enroll in the Spring 2015 CIS280 course!
