Self-propelled device

Dispositif automoteur

Abstract

La présente invention concerne un dispositif automoteur sphérique qui réagit aux commandes à distance provenant d'un utilisateur. Le dispositif automoteur possède un système d'entraînement interne et un système de vision interne. Le système de vision reste dans une orientation constante par rapport au dispositif autopropulsé sphérique. Lorsque le dispositif autopropulsé sphérique roule le long d'une surface, le système de vision interne capture des données vidéo depuis un champ de vision en hauteur.
A spherical, self-propelled device responds to remote controls from a user. The self- propelled device has an internal drive system and an internal vision system. The vision system remains in a constant orientation with respect to the spherical, self-propelled device. As the spherical, self-propelled device rolls along a surface, the internal vision system captures video data from an upward field of view.
