CheddarTV | Ohmni for Home Care
Wednesday September 6, 2017
Recently, Dr. Thuc Vu, OhmniLabs CTO and Co-founder, appeared on CheddarTV to discuss how we see Ohmni shaping the future of home care. Dr. Vu explained how and why we aim to place affordable robots in every home.
The purpose of the Ohmni telepresence robot is to make interactions between people a lot more engaging, spontaneous, and meaningful. Think of it as a tablet you can drive around in a home. Drive into the living room to watch television with your grandparents or drive into the dining room and have dinner with your kids when you can’t physically be there.
The human-scale design that reaches about shoulder height is comfortable to use either standing or sitting. And the moving neck makes it a more lifelike and engaging experience for families. The mobility of the robot allows it to not only travel throughout the house but even go on walks outside with family members.
In terms of security and privacy, Ohmni’s software has various layers to protect the user from exposing their private information. OhmniLabs does not stream client audio nor video through their servers. Information flow peer-to-peer in through an encrypted connection. You can use most any device — a laptop, tablet or computer — to dial into Ohmni.
