C-U-ROBOT: Remote Accessibility Device
For the first time in Israel: ANU – Museum of the Jewish People is proud to present a state-of-the-art tool: The C-U-ROBOT.
As part of the museum’s focus on accessibility through the use of innovative technologies, we launched a new robot tour. This tour will allow thousands of people with disabilities and special needs who are unable to visit the museum in person, to experience a full guided tour from the comfort of their own home or institute. This robot is the first of its kind in Israel, and one of the only ones in use in museums around the world.
Visitors who take the robot tour enjoy a private guided tour with a guide who has been specially trained to use this new technology. During the tour, visitors can see the guide and the exhibitions via 3 cameras that allow a 360-degree view of the museum. Visitors can also fully control the robot’s movements, and communicate directly with their guide, as if they were physically in the museum.
