Double Robotics

Double Robotics is a robotics company that participated in the S12 cohort of Y Combinator and is the creator of Double, a telepresence robot. Double allows a physical presence where a user can't be in person, for example, an office, classroom, or conference.

Double Robotics was backed by the Y Combinator startup accelerator in 2012 and began shipping their product in May 2013. The founders include David Cann, a designer and iOS developer, and Marc DeVidts, an electrical/embedded systems engineer. The company is located in Burlingame, California.

Product features

  • Lateral Stability Control is a shock absorption mechanism built in the base to maintain lateral stability while traversing common obstacles in an office or classroom setting, such as cords, bumps, or a change in threshold.
  • Power Drive enables the robot to go faster than normal driving speed, when the driver needs to go a long distance. This is enabled by holding down the Shift key on a keyboard while driving with the arrow keys.
  • Camera Kit enables the 'Always-on Floor View' for increased spatial awareness. Adaptive HD is a technique developed for smooth video when moving and higher resolution (up to HD).
