It is also accompanied by a copy of each prior art document cited in this report.
1. Basis of the report
a. With regard to the language, the international search was carried out on the basis of:
the international application in the language in which it was filed.
a translation of the international application into                                          which is the language of a translation furnished for the purposes of international search (Rules 12.3(a) and 23.1(b)).
b.
This international search report has been established taking into account the rectification of an obvious mistake authorized by or notified to this Authority under Rule 91 (Rule 43.6bis(a)).
c.
With regard to any nucleotide and/or amino acid sequence disclosed in the international application, the international search was carried out on the basis of a sequence listing:
2. Certain claims were found unsearchable
3. Unity of invention is lacking
This International Searching Authority found multiple inventions in this international application, as follows:
1. claims: 1-17, 23(completely); 25, 26(partially)
A robotic device (claim 1) comprising: - an energy storage device; and - a controller configured to determine whether a quantity of energy stored in the energy storage device is below a predetermined energy level, wherein: the robotic device is configured to perform a cleaning task if the determined quantity of energy is not below the predetermined energy level; if the determined quantity of energy is below the predetermined energy level: the controller is configured to estimate a likelihood of the robotic device being capable of locating a recharging base station; and in dependence on the estimated likelihood, the robotic device is configured to seek the recharging base station or perform the cleaning task, a method for using said robotic device (claim 23), a computer program code for performing a method as claimed in claim 23 (claim 25 part), and a non-transitory computer readable storage medium having stored thereon computer readable instructions that, when executed at a processor, cause a robotic device comprising the processor to perform the method as claimed in claim 23 (claim 26 part.).
2. claims: 18-22, 24(completely); 25, 26(partially)
A robotic device (claim 18) comprising: - an energy storage device; - one or more charging contacts for receiving energy from a base station; - a controller configured to determine whether the one or more charging contacts are receiving energy from the base station; wherein: if the one or more charging contacts are not receiving energy from the base station: the controller is configured to estimate a likelihood of the base station being capable of providing energy to the one or more charging contacts; and in dependence on the estimated likelihood, the robotic device is configured to seek the recharging base station or not seek the recharging base station. a method for using said a robotic device (claim 24), a computer program code for performing a method as claimed in claim 24 (claim 25 part), and a non-transitory computer readable storage medium having stored thereon computer readable instructions that, when executed at a processor, cause a robotic device comprising the processor to perform the method as claimed in claim 24 (claim 26 part.).
1.
As all required additional search fees were timely paid by the applicant, this international search report covers all searchable claims.
2.
As all searchable claims could be searched without effort justifying additional fees, this Authority did not invite payment of additional fees.
3.
As only some of the required additional search fees were timely paid by the applicant, this international search report covers only those claims for which fees were paid, specifically claims Nos.:
4.
No required additional search fees were timely paid by the applicant. Consequently, this international search report is restricted to the invention first mentioned in the claims; it is covered by claims Nos.: 1-17, 23(completely); 25, 26(partially)
Remark on Protest
The additional search fees were accompanied by the applicant’s protest and, where applicable, the payment of a protest fee.
The additional search fees were accompanied by the applicant’s protest but the applicable protest fee was not paid within the time limit specified in the invitation.
No protest accompanied the payment of additional search fees.
4. Title of the invention
The text is approved as submitted by the applicant.
The text has been established by this Authority to read as follows:
ROBOTIC DEVICE WITH ENERGY STORAGE DEVICE

5. Abstract
The text is approved as submitted by the applicant.
The text has been established, according to Rule 38.2, by this Authority as it appears in Box No. IV. The applicant may, within one month from the date of mailing of this international search report, submit comments to this Authority.
