First experiences telepresence robot March 2013:
The robots are already used on a small scale on the shop floor. There are still many drawbacks: the machines are expensive, it is difficult to control them remotely, and sometimes the robots become unmanageable because there is no good Internet connection in a certain place. The robots can't climb stairs either, and some employees still find it a little uncomfortable to handle the robots.
