Ava Robotics is a developer of autonomous mobile robots for telepresence uses, such as video collaboration. The company's Ava robot can move autonomously—allowing a remote user to move around in a distant location "as if they were physically there," Ava Robotics says. Ava leverages video technology from Cisco for high-definition video conferencing, according to the company. Cambridge, Mass.-based Ava Robotics was founded in 2016 by the team behind iRobot's Ava 500 remote presence robot, and the company's robot serves as an update to the Ava 500. In March, Ava Robotics announced the launch of its Ava robot, which is available through Cisco channel partners.
