Drone robot system for delivering goods
Provided is a mobile robot drone system for delivering mail and goods and a method for delivering mail and goods using the mobile robot drone system. The mobile robot drone system for delivering mail and goods may comprise a mail and goods compartment including an opening to receive mail and a lid to place and remove mail and goods. For moving, the mobile robot may have one or more driving motors coupled to moving means. Itinerary to reach a location, where the mobile robot may collect mail or goods, may be determined using a processor and a GPS unit. Additionally, the mobile robot drone system may comprise a memory unit communicatively coupled to the processor and configured to store at least payment data, purchase data, and the itinerary data. The data and/or various messages may be displayed on a screen coupled to the processor.
The mobile robot drone system may communicate with external devices via a communication circuit communicatively coupled to the processor. The communication circuit may include a Bluetooth module, a WiFi module, a communication port, including a universal serial bus (USB) port, a parallel port, an infrared transceiver port, a radiofrequency transceiver port, and so forth.
In some embodiments, communication with the mobile robot drone system may be performed via a screen, which may be a touchscreen enabling user interaction with the mobile robot drone system through touch. Alternatively, operation of functions of the mobile robot drone system may be controlled using one or more control elements.
In some embodiments, access to the mobile robot drone system and/or mail and goods compartment may be authorized. Authorization may include a password, a Personal Identification Number (PIN) code, voice authorization, biometric authorization, and so forth. The biometric authorization may be done by fingerprint scanning, palm scanning, face scanning, retina scanning, and the like. To perform scanning, the mobile robot drone system may comprise the one or more biometric sensors.
Biometric authorization may be based on comparing scanned biometric parameters of a person to reference biometric parameters of the user stored by the memory unit to recognize the user.
Additionally, the mobile robot drone system may comprise one or more solar cells disposed on an outer surface of the mobile robot drone system and configured to charge the mobile robot drone system. Alternatively, the mobile robot drone system may charge wirelessly using a wireless charger accessory.
In some embodiments, the mobile robot drone system may comprise a microphone. The microphone may sense voice data, such as a voice command, a voice memo, a voice message, and so forth. The voice data may be transmitted to the processor for processing and/or stored to the memory.
The voice data and/or other sound data (an audio recording, a sound signal, an alarm, and so forth) may be reproduced using an audio reproduction element. In such a way, the mobile robot drone system may record voice messages of the user and transmit them to people.
