Application: Apparatus, system, and method of certifying sensing for autonomous robot navigation (Patent ID: US20240033924A1)

The patent filed by Jabil Inc. describes an apparatus, system, and method for certifying a sensor that assists in the navigation of an autonomous mobile robot. The system includes a robot body with a light source near the sensing camera to illuminate the camera's field of view. A processing system executes steps such as activating the light source, monitoring camera data, calculating camera performance metrics, and using this information for navigation.

The system's claims detail the components and processes involved in certifying the sensing camera, including comparing pixel alterations, confirming proper operation, and adjusting parameters based on camera and light source characteristics. The system can be customized based on the type of camera, light source, distance between them, and the system's context and environment. The light source options include LEDs of different types, with specific characteristics like operating wavelength and emission pattern. The system can be deployed on an autonomous robot to aid in navigation by detecting and avoiding obstacles, including dynamic obstacles, based on the camera's performance metrics.
