   The VGo robot is a telepresence machine that enables a person to replicate themselves in a distant location and have the freedom to move around as if they were physically there. With VGo, you can see, hear, talk, interact, and go anywhere. VGo is not a traditional videoconferencing/telepresence solution where two or more people meet using specially equipped rooms or PCs in their offices.  With VGo, you are completely independent of the people in the distant location – it’s 100% remote controlled.  You don’t make a call – you just go there – your presence is established remotely via VGo’s physical presence.

VGo enables you to go to where you need to be – instantly. No planning a trip or scheduling someone else’s time or extracting yourself from a particular environment. Even though you’re not there, you’re in control. React to issues immediately. See the problems for yourself when they arise. VGo enables you to travel somewhere without the inconveniences of today’s physical modes of travel – no downtime, no security lines, no parking hassles, no long walks across a campus just to name a few.

   VGo is being used successfully today by students who can’t physically go to school due to an illness, accident or medical condition Its appliance design means instant deployment anywhere so no planning or handholding is required. VGo is also a great tool for teachers who may be remote.

  Here is Lyndon Baty, a high school student in Knox City, Texas who has an illness that requires him to remain at home because of the risk of physically being in class. He’s a perfect example of type of student who benefits greatly by being able to “attend” school via his VGo – or “BatyBot” as its affectionately known at Lyndon’s school.

    From the safety of his home, in the morning, Lyndon gets on his computer instead of the bus.  He uses VGo to move around school, interact with teachers, chat with his friends between classes and spend the lunch period with them without endangering his health.

   Lyndon operates his VGo simply with an internet-connected computer equipped with audio capabilities and a webcam.  VGo runs for a full school day before needing to be recharged.

   VGo for Remote Students has opened up academic and social environments to other disabled and immune-deficient students as well. There are no longer boundaries between them and the world that was previously inaccessible.

   VGo’s robotic telepresence solution is used by remote engineers and remote project team members to stay connected with distant team members, to engage in processes and to keep visually involved in engineering, product development, manufacturing and integration projects. 

   VGo is used today by executives, managers, and small business proprietors whose productivity and attention to detail contribute to the success of their businesses.  VGo enables managers to “be” in the most important place at the right time without the associated down-time, inconvenience and cost of travel.

   With VGo, executives and managers can visit many facilities in a single day. They can tackle a customer or operational crisis instantly.  They can see for themselves and assess the state of distant operations.  They can provide the leadership that’s required to keep the business running smoothly, the employees motivated and messaging on target. VGo facilitates informal/ad hoc meetings around a conference table, in the lab, at the water cooler, walking down the hall or even in the break room.

   Executives and managers can arrive on their own and move about a location as if they were there, remotely controlling their movements using an internet-connected PC with audio/visual capability.  VGo is on-demand – just click where you want to go in the building – pop in for a few minutes or stay all day since VGo runs up 12 hours before re-charging.
