Ava 500
The Ava 500 keeps frequenting its charging dock in sessions, so it efficiently operates for a significant amount of time without the need of a manual assistance. The pricing on the Ava 500 is huge @ $69,500, but the cost is pretty much justified with the features it has included - the Cisco EX60 telepresence platform that pairs a camera with a 21.5-inch HD display, which initiates a call when required (this single component alone costs about $9000).

iRobot Ava 500 is available with select Cisco resellers like Yorktel. The partner companies are targeting remote management and call centers with this offering. They're even aiming Ava at supply chain and logistics, data center and manufacturing. Announced in June last year, the robot has already experienced several field trials at companies like Bayer.
