iRobot Corp. and Google Inc. teamed up to create Android applications for the iRobot Ava mobile robotics platform. Ava is described as an
accessible development platform for business or consumer robotic applications.

“Ava is the first app-ready robot,” said Colin Angle, chairman and CEO of iRobot. “By tapping into an almost limitless supply of Android-based apps, Ava is poised to revolutionize how people communicate and deliver information through remote presence and other means. With the right ideas, Ava can also revolutionize how people live both at home and in the workplace.”
