Application: Method and system for controlling a plurality of robots traveling through a specific area, and building in which robots are disposed (Patent ID: US20240069571A1)

The patent filed by Naver Corp. describes a method for controlling multiple robots traveling autonomously in a designated space to ensure each robot passes through a specific area. The method involves identifying the specific area, controlling the first robot to pass through it via a defined point or triggering a specific area driving mode, and sequentially controlling subsequent robots to pass through the area. The system uses predefined or dynamically defined points in the specific area, assigns available points based on occupancy information, and adjusts robot movements based on the presence of other robots in the area.

Furthermore, the patent details the process of controlling robots to move through the specific area in a line, imitating the motion of people passing through a confined space. The method includes transitioning robots from autonomous driving mode to specific area driving mode, adjusting movements based on the presence of other robots, and returning to autonomous mode upon exiting the specific area. The patent also covers the implementation of the method through a computer program stored in a non-transitory medium and a robot control system with processors executing the instructions for controlling robot movements in the designated space.
