Patent for License:

Auditory Equipment for a Robot    

Auditory equipment and system that is able to attain active perception when hearing a sound from an external target.

Overview

A sensory device like a microphone is used by human like robots to pick up sound from a target, but the internal mechanisms of the robot can interfere with this sensor. The current technology presents auditory equipment and a system that is able to attain active perception when hearing a sound from an external target without being influence by noises generated from the interior of the robot such as those sounds made by the robots driving elements.

Comments on Deal Structure, Potential Terms and Restrictions

Patent available for commercialization, enforcement rights negotiable.
