Cambridge-based Vecna Technologies acquires VGo, maker of telepresence robots
By Nidhi Subbaraman
Vecna Technologies of Cambridge is buying VGo Communications, a New Hampshire maker of telepresence robots.
Both companies build robots that can operate safely among people. Vecna’s sturdy, boxy bots-on-wheels trundle around medical centers and warehouses hauling loads. VGo’s signature product is a small camera system on a 3-foot mobile platform that can be remotely controlled.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The relocation of employees from VGo’s Nashua office to Vecna’s headquarters is already underway.
