iRobot® Ava® 500 builds on the values of telepresence by extending the “power of in-person” beyond fixed environments – enabling the user freedom of movement and to establish a physical presence. It allows for conversations to continue outside of offices and conference rooms – into the hallways and other locations.


iRobot Ava 500 is ideal when freedom of movement and physical presence are needed to achieve an even more personal degree of collaboration within a globally dispersed workforce. Examples include:

  • Remote team collaboration: allows those working off-site to more personally participate within highly collaborative teams
  • Executive management: provides managers of satellite teams to be more personally present and able to move throughout an office environment
  • Tours and inspections: delivering mobile presence to areas including manufacturing facilities, labs, customer experience centers and supply chain facilities
  • Remote corporate training and presentations: enables a more personal and interactive approach to remote corporate training and presentations

Performance Capabilities

  • Easy to use
