Title: PHOTOGRAPHING DEVICE AND METHOD USING DRONE TO AUTOMATICALLY TRACK AND PHOTOGRAPH MOVING OBJECT
Abstract:
The invention relates to a device using a drone to automatically track and photograph a moving object, comprising: a drone flight platform, a load stabilization device, a photographing apparatus, and a mobile terminal, wherein the photographing apparatus is fixed to the drone flight platform via the load stabilization device and is configured to take an image of a moving object, and the mobile terminal is disposed on the moving object and can acquire location information of the moving object. According to location information of the drone flight platform and the moving object, a flightpath of the drone flight platform and a relative location of the photographing apparatus with respect to the drone flight platform are adjusted. Moreover, an orientation of the photographing apparatus is adjusted according to the image taken by the photographing apparatus, thereby enabling the photographing apparatus to track the moving object. The invention further relates to a method using a drone to automatically track and photograph a moving object, drone and control terminal.
