Huawei has published a patent for “a method and device for a drone to follow a vehicle”, the publication number is CN113741506A. According to the summary of Qicha’s patent, the patent describes a method and device for a drone to follow a vehicle.
The vehicle includes a vehicle number terminal, the vehicle terminal includes a V2X communication module, and the drone includes a V2X communication module. The method includes: the drone receives the relevant information of the vehicle sent by the vehicle-mounted terminal; the relevant information of the vehicle includes: the driving speed of the vehicle, the heading angle information of the vehicle, and the first position of the vehicle.
The relevant information of the vehicle predicts the second position that the vehicle will drive to, the second position being a position after the first position; the drone adjusts the flight trajectory according to the predicted second position to follow the vehicle.
Through the method of the embodiments of this application, the drone can follow the vehicle in real-time, improve the accuracy of the drone’s recognition of the vehicle, and can adjust the flight trajectory in time according to the relevant information of the vehicle, so that the flight trajectory is more consistent. The actual driving trajectory of the vehicle.
In March this year, Huawei disclosed a drone-related patent, proposing a method for flying authorization of drone systems. Among them, mobile operators support networked drone services, identifying line-of-sight and ultra-distance Sight-range operation drones and flight authorization.
