DOUBLE ROBOTICS INTRODUCES DOUBLE 2
Next Generation of Double Robotics Marks the Most Advanced Telepresence Robot Yet
Burlingame, Calif., January 6, 2016 - Double Robotics, creator of Double, the telepresence robot, today unveiled Double 2, the all-new model of its internationally-acclaimed telepresence robot. The new Double includes Lateral Stability Control, Power Drive, and Camera Kit, which are designed to increase spatial awareness for the driver and enhance the overall driving experience.
“The unveiling of Double 2 marks our deep commitment to our customers to make their experience with Double Robotics the best it can be,” said David Cann, co-founder and CEO at Double Robotics. “The three new features are a direct result of customer feedback. Our mission is to enable all types of remote experiences, and the introduction of Double 2 will help us work toward that goal.”
Lateral Stability Control
Double 2 introduces a transformative, patent-pending technology called Lateral Stability Control that allows drivers to traverse common office or classroom obstacles without losing balance. Lateral Stability Control is a shock absorption mechanism and advanced software algorithm that enables Double to maintain stability while crossing over cords, bumps, or a change in flooring.
Drivers can now go up to 80 percent faster than normal driving speed when Power Drive is enabled. By simply holding the Shift key, Double 2 can cruise at an average indoor walking speed of 1.6 miles per hour, an increase from 0.9 miles per hour on the first generation Double.
The visual experience on Double 2 is even better with the all-new Camera Kit accessory. Camera Kit is an attachable camera with a 150-degree wide-angle lens that increases field-of-view by 70 percent on both sides. Along with a wide-angle lens, there will now be always-on Floor View, so drivers can see exactly what’s in front of them at all times. Photos will now be taken with a 5 megapixel HD camera, compared to the standard 1.2 megapixel camera.
