Title
(EN) OPTICAL BEACON FOR AUTONOMOUS DEVICE AND AUTONOMOUS DEVICE CONFIGURED TO USE THE SAME
(FR) BALISE OPTIQUE POUR DISPOSITIF AUTONOME ET DISPOSITIF AUTONOME CONFIGURÉ POUR UTILISER CELLE-CI
Abstract
(EN)
An optical beacon may include a housing, an optical emitter at least partially disposed within the housing, and an optical identifier generator optically coupled to the optical emitter. Light incident on the optical identifier generator may be shaped into at least one optical identifier. The optical identifier may be associated with an action capable of being carried out by a robotic cleaner such that detection of the optical identifier by the robotic cleaner causes the robotic cleaner to carry out the action.
(FR)
L'invention concerne une balise optique pouvant comprendre un boîtier, un émetteur optique au moins partiellement disposé à l'intérieur du boîtier, et un générateur d'identificateur optique couplé optiquement à l'émetteur optique. La lumière incidente sur le générateur d'identifiant optique peut être façonnée en au moins un identifiant optique. L'identifiant optique peut être associé à une action susceptible d'être effectuée par un robot nettoyeur de sorte que la détection de l'identifiant optique par le robot nettoyeur amène le robot nettoyeur à effectuer l'action.
