AV1 is the world's first telepresence robot specifically developed for children and young adults with long-term illness.

With AV1, the child can participate in class, and maintain contact with their school friends, from the comfort of their own home or hospital bed. AV1 is controlled by the child through an app.

Gutt i klasserommet med AV1

Many children experience loneliness when they are absent from school and separated from their friends for extended periods due to illness. Because of this, they may face challenges when returning to their everyday lives. The AV1 robot provides a solution to this problem.

Eirik and his AV1

Eirik, nine, has cerebral palsy (CP) and three times a year he is absent from school, due to training which he undertakes for two to three weeks at a time. From his tablet, Eirik can see, hear, and talk to his classmates when he is at the training centre, and an added bonus is that Eirik's friends think the robot is really cool!

Participate on your own terms

AV1 is the student's eyes, ears, and voice in class on the days when they can't be physically present. The student signals that they want to speak by instructing the top of the AV1's head to blink. The robot turns 360 degrees so that they can see and speak to all of their classmates, should they want to. If they don’t feel like actively participating in class, they let their peers know by turning on the blue light on top of the AV1’s head.

Easier returning to school

It can be difficult returning to school after an absence due to sickness. AV1 provides a solution to this problem. By allowing the child or young adult to be present in class during periods of treatment, AV1 can make returning to school easier after prolonged periods of absence.

Safety first

The security of usage is No Isolation's highest priority. In order to get the most out of AV1, it is crucial that the user, their classmates, and teachers are aware of the purpose of the robot and can confidently use it. No data is stored. All data that travels between the device and AV1 is encrypted. Consequently, no outsiders can access the video and audio that is sent between the child and the robot.

The robot gave Emma a new everyday life.

Mother of Emma (10)

Emma and her AV1

When Emma, 10, was diagnosed with acute kidney failure, her immune system was severely weakened, and she couldn’t start year five at school. However, Emma now follows classes on the screen of her mobile phone, through a robot standing on her desk in the classroom. With her finger, Emma controls the robot using an app. She can rotate the robot sideways, and up and down. Often her friends bring the robot outside during breaks so that Emma can see what is happening in the schoolyard too. Emma really likes that she can talk to her classmates during breaks.
