Gutmann - US0257910A1
  • Filing Date: 03/17/2005
  • Publication Date: 11/08/2007
  • Inventors: Gutmann et. al.
  • Method and Apparatus for Detecting Plane, and Robot Apparatus Having Apparatus for Detecting Plane
  • Equivalent infringement
  • Abstract: Identifies planes for use in later algorithms and room mapping.

  • Uses distance measurements to identify stairs for walking robot
  • Uses linear regression to find lines with planes
  • Uses lines to reconstruct planar surfaces
  • Similar to our system that detects wall and floor planes
  • Conclusion: Can’t design around, required to implement obstacle avoidance
  • Liability: Equivalent infringement
  • Recommendation: License patent

  • Filing Date: 09/10/2009
  • Publication Date: 03/24/2010
  • Assignee: Honeywell International Inc.
  • System and method of extracting plane features
  • Literal infringement
  • Abstract: Uses mathematical features of nearby 3d planes to determine orientation and motion of robot

  • Identifies planes in 3d space using distance sensor
  • Calculates normals of planes in 3d space
  • Compares subsequent range images to determine motion and orientation of robot
  • Recommends pairing odometer with design
  • Used in UAV’s to minimize perspective distortion
  • Conclusion: Can’t design around unless we accept inaccuracies of odometer
  • Liability: Direct Infringement
  • Recommendation: License patent

  • Filing Date: 01/04/2005
  • Publication Date: 05/15/2007
  • Assignee: Fujitsu Limited
  • Robot system and autonomous mobile robot
  • Literal Infringement
  • Abstract: This is our project
fujitsu us72189932
Fujitsu - US7218993
  • Home security robot
  • Patrols mapped area and records images/video
  • Streams images/video to external device
  • Recommends optional C&C server to communicate with external devices
  • Detects “suspicious” forms and alerts user
  • Uses processor for motion control
  • Designed as MARON-1 in 2002, phone controlled robot
  • Conclusion: Can’t design around, is our project
  • Liability: Direct Infringement
  • Recommendation: License patent
