Claim of US Patent No. 10,484,386

1. A robotic device package delivery system for identifying a claiming entity as a correct entity, the robotic device package delivery system having at least one identity or biometric information computing device, and for delivering a robotic device package to the correct entity, comprising:at least one identifying authority computing device communicatively connected to the at least one identity or biometric information computing device;
at least one delivery destination computing device communicatively connected to the at least one identifying authority computing device;
at least one identification and authentication computing device communicatively connected to the at least one identifying authority computing device; and
at least one delivery robotic device communicatively connected to the at least one delivery destination computing device;
wherein the at least one identity or biometric information computing device comprises at least one data storage device configured to store at least one database arranged to provide at least one item of identity or biometric information to the at least one identifying authority computing device,
wherein the at least one identifying authority computing device comprises at least one processor operatively coupled with at least one data storage device,
the at least one processor being configured to:
collect identity or biometric information from an entity utilizing the at least one identity or biometric information computing device, and
form a profile of information relevant to identification of the entity by utilizing the at least one item of identity or biometric information;
the at least one data storage device being configured to store the profile of information relevant to the identification of the entity;
wherein the at least one delivery destination computing device comprises at least one processor configured to:
receive information relevant to an entity nominated to receive a robotic device package from the at least one identifying authority computing device,
the received information comprising a proposed delivery route and destination;
test whether the proposed delivery route or destination is within an exclusion zone by querying information stored on the at least one data storage device with the proposed delivery route or destination,
accept the proposed delivery route or destination, if the query returns a result informing that the proposed delivery route or destination was not within an exclusion zone, and
dispatch the at least one robotic device along the accepted delivery route, and towards and nearby the accepted destination;
wherein the at least one delivery robotic device comprises:
at least one communication unit configured to receive at least one command from the at least one delivery destination computing device, including a mission to move along the accepted delivery route, and towards and nearby the accepted destination, and
at least one controller configured to guide, navigate or control the at least one delivery robotic device along the accepted delivery route, and towards and nearby the accepted destination,
a body and at least one associated propulsion unit,
the at least one propulsion unit being configured to move the at least one delivery robotic device based on an instruction received from the at least one controller;
wherein the at least one identification and authentication computing device comprises:
at least one communication unit configured to receive, from at least one identifying authority computing device, the profile of information relevant to the entity nominated to receive the robotic device package;
the profile of information including
the at least one item of stored identity information; or
the at least one item of stored biometric information, and,
at least one processor configured to
receive identity or biometric information collected from the claiming entity via an identity or biometric information device,
compare the received identity or biometric information collected from the claiming entity to the at least one item of stored identity or biometric information,
wherein, if a match threshold is achieved, the claiming entity is identified as the correct entity; and causes that match to be communicated to the at least one delivery robotic device; and
wherein the at least one propulsion unit of the at least one delivery robotic device is further configured to move, as instructed, the at least one delivery robotic device in order to facilitate delivery of the robotic device package to the entity only if the claiming entity was the correct entity.
