Application: Robot navigation (Patent ID: US20240036582A1)

The patent filed by Alarm.com Holdings Inc. pertains to methods, systems, and apparatus for robot navigation. The system involves obtaining images of an area from a robot, detecting lines within the images, identifying vanishing lines, determining correction maneuvers using the vanishing lines, and controlling the robot to implement the correction maneuvers. The correction maneuvers can involve providing instructions to the robot, determining the centeredness of the robot based on vanishing lines, determining the heading of the robot, and performing navigation processes like visual inertial odometry.

The system also includes operations for determining if the robot is in a space enclosed by walls, using sensor data to identify the robot's location, and performing navigation processes when the robot moves out of the area. The patent covers computer storage media encoded with instructions for robot navigation, including obtaining images, detecting lines, identifying vanishing lines, determining correction maneuvers, and controlling the robot. The method outlined in the patent involves similar steps of obtaining images, detecting lines, identifying vanishing lines, determining correction maneuvers, and controlling the robot to implement the correction maneuvers.
