When a pupil can’t attend class themselves, AV1 will take their place.
AV1 is the telepresence robot for children and young adults suffering from long-term illness.

AV1 is built to let children take part in school activities on their own terms. The kids using AV1 can decide when to connect and disconnect, simply by pressing a button in the app.
If the child is not feeling up for school, he or she can signalize that they want to be passive listeners, and a blue light will flash on the robot’s head.
If the child wishes to answer a question, they can raise their hand by pressing a button in the app, and a white light will flash.
You can also put the AV1 in whisper mode, so only the kids seated next to the AV1 will hear you.
“The ministry has noted that using these kinds of robots [such as AV1] may be of great use for students that are unable to participate at school due to illness or injury ”
