DADIOS, Elmer P., Edwin Sybingco, Noel S. Gunay: Dancing and Sporty (DANSPORTY) Robots System (CII)

1.  The Invention


Title: Dancing and Sporty (DANSPORTY) Robots System


The problem the inventor(s) wanted to solve:

Developing autonomous mobile robot that simulates behavior of humans to cooperate with each other is the problem that this invention will address. Specifically it focuses on problems in navigation and cooperation control among robots.



DANSPORTY Robot System exhibit social, educational, and entertaining behavior of robots. The robots have the following capabilities:

a)       Dancing - Live with any type of music (disco, ballroom, etc.).

b)       Field demonstrations and synchronize motions (groups of robots at any time).

c)       Sports competition such as: Soccer football, Golf, Wrestling, Track Race, etc.

The robots are controlled by AI computer program and perform its tasks autonomously.



This DANSPORTY Robot system has the following Features:

a)       Camera Vision System that serves as the eyes of the robots.

b)       RF Wireless robot communication system

c)       PC/Laptop – Contains the AI programs for the system to operate:

d)       Autonomous Mobile Robots –performs various tasks at real time.


Fields of application:

This invention can be applied directly to manufacturing process automation, and academic research dealing with mechatronics, intelligent control, vision system, wireless communication, microelectronics, and Artificial Intelligence.



This invention has strong impact to manufacturing industry and to local community.  This is a state-of-the-art client-server based application that provides real-time data acquisition and information processing.  Real-time data acquisition is done through a vision system and local wireless communication network. Furthermore, this invention provides a platform that will encourage and motivate students to study science and technology.
