Simultaneous Localization & Mapping (SLAM)

State of the art, high-end navigation today


5/7/2014

Visual SLAM (vSLAM)


Next Generation Navigation: Camera-based
mapping yields both 3D key-points and
environmental layout
Enables autonomous navigation: Uses
efficient algorithms for path planning, selfdocking, way-point navigation and efficient
coverage algorithms
Consumer-grade pricing: Worlds lowest cost
implementation use QVGA cameras, running
on an low-end video processor
Scalable solution: Can scale to 3D dense
maps, large environments, outdoor areas and
more

Cases descended from these early


matters are still being processed,
and iRobot continues to observe
the industry and tailor new sword
and shield patents based on the market.
Additional patents and patent applications
cover improvements and innovations through
the intervening years to the present day.

We are of course adding new patents


and patent applications based on the
state of the art as it is developed.

Litigation Success Rate
(Strength of Case)

Median litigation costs for a moderate-sized U.S. patent infringement suit


is $2.5 million; median cost for a large suit is $5.0 million

Depositions, document searches, etc.
Median time to trial was 2.5 years in 2012

Overall success rates for practicing entities is 34% ; overall consumer


product success rate is 35%

Counterclaims

Can defendant add a counterclaim for infringement of its own patent?


Might defendant be able to otherwise disrupt our business?

Achievable Business
Goals

Injunction? Damages/Royalties? Halo effect of strengthened portfolio?

Roomba 800 Launch Success


Aeroforce extractors improve cleaning by

up to 50% with virtually no maintenance


needed
Exceeding expectations on those selected
retail outlets where launched
R880 top selling SKU in its category on
Amazon NA with~ 5 star rating
#1 SKU iRobot eCommerce, since launch
Rolling out progressively at retail in NA,
EMEA, Japan
The rubber rollers on the bottom have been
the biggest difference. Our old vacuum had the
bristled roller on the bottom and wouldn't even
rotate it was so tangled in hair. Now, hair isn't a
problem.

I had a Roomba many years ago when they first


came out. That Roomba was a novelty. This
Roomba is a masterpiece.
