Project Description:

RoboJ is a semi-autonomous rover that captures smooth 360-degree video content. The rover can be controlled remotely or can follow an on-camera reporter. The prototype was presented during the opening keynote at the Journalism Interactive Conference and presented at the Online News Association Conference in 2016. A fourth generation of the robot in development with Segway Robotics will include a custom application for journalists and 360-degree video. This partnership will enable a more affordable robot for journalists across the industry and will be available in 2020.
