VGo Robotic Telepresence

VGo enables a remote worker to not only see, hear and talk, but also move around and be more productive in distant locations.

VGo is an entirely new video conferencing solution that hasn't been available until now. VGo gives you the ability to not only be in a distant location, but also to move around in that location. In addition to versatile remote monitoring and inspection, VGo increases productivity by enabling face-to-face interaction, not just in the conference room or behind the desk, but now anywhere in your facility. VGo is not designed as a direct replacement for in-person interaction or as a replacement for videoconferencing, (though smaller organizations may choose to use VGo instead of videoconferencing) but rather as the next best alternative to "being" in the office, home or place of business.

  • See, hear, talk, and move in any location - be in two places at once
  • Mobility enhances distant effectiveness by freeing you from a conference room or office
  • 100% remote controlled - never be dependent on anyone else - even though you are not there
  • High quality audio / video and easy driving via any PC or laptop with an internet connection makes it like you're really there
  • Advanced security controls and privacy policies mimic real life
  • WiFi connectivity, battery power, and advanced robotics deliver complete freedom of movement

Recent availability of:

  • widespread affordable WiFi / broadband internet
  • sophisticated, yet low lost robotic technology
  • inexpensive yet powerful video processing engines

have enabled the industry veterans at VGo Communications to deliver an active presence solution at an amazingly affordable cost.

Disciplined engineering has produced a graceful and intelligent form factor, a simple yet powerful remote control user interface, high quality video images and amazing audio pickup and fidelity. All without the need for time consuming setup and training.

Using it is Easy

  1. On your PC or laptop, bring up your VGo PC app.
  2. Click the location where you need to be.
  3. You're done. There is no step 3.

Now you can see, hear, talk, be heard, be seen and go anywhere. Go fast, go slow, pivot in place. Just like you would if you were there.

How it All Works

VGo's unique capability is in its remote controlled mobility combined with 2-way video and audio communications. The solution comprises two elements:

  • The VGo - The mobile device that you call into that carries your presence.
  • The VGo PC App - The software application that is downloaded to your PC that you use to initiate connectivity, see and hear the far end and drive the VGo.

Calls run over the internet with the help of VGoNet, a special cloud computing network that manages everything so you don't have to.. The network was especially designed to handle the complexities of a solution that requires real time AV communications and simultaneous robotic remote controls.
