Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR DISTRIBUTED AUTONOMOUS ROBOT INTERFACING USING LIVE IMAGE FEEDS
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS D'INTERFAÇAGE ROBOTIQUE AUTONOME RÉPARTI À L'AIDE DE CHARGES D'IMAGES EN DIRECT
Abstract:
(EN) Described in detail herein is an autonomous fulfillment system. The system includes the first computing system, with an interactive display. The first computing system can transmit a request for physical objects from a facility. A second computing system can transmit instructions autonomous robot devices to retrieve the physical objects from the facility. The second computing system can control the image capturing device of the autonomous robot device to capture a live image feed of the at least one physical object picked up by the at least autonomous robot device. The second computing system can switch an input feed of the first computing system to display the live image feed on the display of the first computing system. The second computing system, instruct the autonomous device to discard the physical objects picked up by the at least one autonomous robot device and to pick up a replacement physical object.
(FR) L'invention concerne en détail un système autonome de gestion optimale des commandes. Le système comprend un premier système informatique ayant une unité d'affichage interactif. Le premier système informatique peut transmettre une demande d'objets physiques à partir d'une installation. Un second système informatique peut transmettre des instructions à des dispositifs robotiques autonomes pour récupérer les objets physiques à partir de l'installation. Le second système informatique peut commander le dispositif de capture d'image du dispositif robotique autonome pour capturer une charge d'image en direct dudit ou desdits objets physiques saisis par le ou les dispositifs robotiques autonomes. Le second système informatique peut commuter une charge d'entrée du premier système informatique pour afficher la charge d'image en direct sur l'unité d'affichage du premier système informatique. Le second système informatique donne au dispositif autonome l'ordre de jeter les objets physiques saisis par le ou les dispositifs robotiques autonomes et de saisir un objet physique de remplacement.
