It’s compatible with multiple ruggedized and consumer Android-based touchscreen tablets. 

Features of the new system include a virtual joystick to steer the robot, predictive drive lines for easier navigating, data sharing from the operator's controller to other team members or remote observers, video recording, and direct control of the robots’ arms for simpler manipulation.

iRobot will be demonstrating the uPoint MRC system in booth #1526 at IACP.
