TRINA (Tele-Robotic Intelligent Nursing Assistant) 2.0, a.k.a. AVATRINA, is the robot platform being developed by Team AVATRINA. Originally developed as NSF-supported research at Duke University and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, TRINA is being adapted to suit the goals of the ANA Avatar XPRIZE challenge.
TRINA is an advanced telepresence robot that allows you to see, hear, navigate, and interact with a remote environment. A human operator controls the robot using an off-the-shelf VR system, either with the built-in controllers or haptic gloves. In the future we are planning to provide semi-autonomous functionality, which will enable you to leverage most of TRINA’s full capabilities simply through a mobile device.
