Videoconferencing Robots

Videoconferencing robots are an emerging technology that ITS is exploring. They are a new alternative for individuals to join meetings, conferences, or events, and feel a greater sense of mobility and interaction with their peers from a remote location. ITS supports robots at the university by:

  • Consulting with units on potential robot models (and providing recommendations on which robots have been tested and work on our network).
  • Connecting robots that units purchase with our network.
  • Supporting network connectivity issues over time.
