Gostai Jazz robots give CeBIT a taste of science-fiction

Gostai will present its Jazz mobile telepresence at CeBIT. For this occasion, Jazz now features an LCD screen which shows the face of the person controlling the robot. CeBIT will be the first time Gostai shows this new design for Jazz.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - Feb. 23, 2011 - CeBIT is the place to be to show cutting edge technologies. Gostai takes this opportunity to showcase its Jazz robot with a brand new LCD screen in Hannover. Jazz will roll down the aisles of hall 9 starting from booth B09 in the French Pavillion from March 1 to March 5.
Jazz is a robot made for mobile telepresence. It is 1-meter tall, fitted with a camera and connected to the Internet over WiFi. The user connects to the robot from afar via a regular web browser. He can then control a robot in Paris from New York and see through the robot’s camera, which image is displayed in the browser in real-time. That way, the user can take part in a meeting, visit a place, and see what is happening in their office or factory in a natural and interactive way. There is no need to travel as the robot “teleports” the user so they can watch the robot’s surroundings while talking & hearing through the embedded loudspeaker and microphone. All this is done while controlling the robot’s moves via an intuitive interface.
Mobile telepresence is a new way to communicate, which makes informal talks easier. In addition to the sound and image provided in usual videoconferencing systems, mobile telepresence also enables the user to move. With mobile telepresence, it is now possible to keep in touch with a distant place while away or teleworking. It also helps reduce carbon footprint and travel costs, as well as being a device to welcome guests. Jazz is now available for sale starting at 7900€.
CeBIT is the first time Gostai showcases its Jazz robot with an LCD screen. The screen makes it possible to see the person who is controlling the robot. This, in addition to Jazz’s articulated head, makes interactions even more natural. According to Gostai founder and CEO Jean-Christophe Baillie, « mobile telepresence will completely change long-distance communication. Gostai decided to make the Jazz line of robots user-friendly and elegant without compromising on quality, proving that robotics can be both efficient and a pleasure to use ».
