Double 3 performing in Kuressaare concert hall
The event in Kuressaare deserves special mention, because for the first time in our practice, the robot was used in a very large audience. Since the capabilities of the built-in microphone were obviously insufficient for such a hall, auxiliary measures had to be taken.
Kuressaare is the biggest city on a rather remote Saaremaa island and telepresence robot is exactly what you need if a two-hour drive on snowy roads and a ferry crossing isn’t your dream plan for a weekend.
We had to improvise and it appears that lavalier microphone is totally compatible with Double 3 robot, although the transmitter/battery module should have been places lower on the pole not to jeopardize the stability.
