Project overview
Project Overview

  • Home Security Robot

  • Interaction through a Webserver

  • Robot driven manually through house and spots intruders

  • Relays video to web interface using kinnect



Gutmann us0257910a1
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

Honeywell - EP2166375A2

  • 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

Fujitsu - US7218993

  • 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
