The child's eyes, ears and voice in the classroom

When a pupil can’t attend class themselves, AV1 will take their place. AV1 is the telepresence robot for children and young adults suffering from long-term illness.

In the UK, more than

72 000

children are missing out on their childhood due to long-term illness. That means in every eight classroom there is an empty desk.

AV1 is built to let children participate

Being diagnosed with a long-term or chronic illness puts a dent in your everyday life, and cause you to miss school and time with your friends. Often, the isolation can be as bad as the illness itself. That is why we created AV1.

Designed for classroom use

Av1 App En

AV1 is built to let children take part in school activities on their own terms. The kids using AV1 can decide when to connect and disconnect, simply by pressing a button in the app.

If the child is not feeling up for school, he or she can signalise that they want to be passive listeners, and a blue light will flash on the robot's head. If the child wishes to answer a question, they can raise their hand by pressing a button in the app, and a white light will flash.You can also put the AV1 in whisper mode, so only the kids seated next to the AV1 will hear you.

Secure video streaming

Privacy is one of our main concerns – both for the child and the people that interact with AV1.

A secure video stream for all parties involved

Single user

The AV1 app is password protected, and the robot can only be connected to a single solitary device

Only real-time

The stream can only be accessed real-time. It is not possible to record the stream, nothing is stored, and screenshots is prohibited.

Encrypted stream

The stream is end-to-end encrypted. This means that no other than the child/young adult connected via their tablet or phone can access the stream. Not even No Isolation.

How we work with schools and districts

Av1 Blue Light Back Blackboard Children Rising Hands Teacher

We know that disease courses vary, and if you have one or more children at your school with long-term illness, you can rent or buy an AV1. We have created resources to inform all parties involved, and can give you advice on how to get the most out of AV1 for the student, the classmates and the teacher.

Depending on your needs, we can provide services that quickly lets you scale and manage your all your AV1s in use. Needs differ, therefore we provide flexible solutions for both families, the public sector and organisations.

How we work with organisations

Do you represent an organisation working with children and young adults with long-term illness? If your organisation needs multiple AV1s in circulation, we have a scalable and manageable system to organise the use.

If you or your company want to donate AV1s, we can help you find the right channels to reach the children in need of one.
