Title (EN) AUTONOMOUSLY LANDING AN UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLE
(FR) ATTERRISSAGE AUTONOME D'UN VÉHICULE AÉRIEN SANS PILOTE
Abstract:
(EN) The present disclosure is directed toward systems and methods for enabling autonomous landing of an unmanned aerial vehicle. For example, systems and methods described herein enable autonomous landing of the unmanned aerial vehicle by providing an unmanned aerial vehicle ground station with various guidance systems for guiding the autonomous landing. In some embodiments, the guidance systems enable autonomous landing by providing one or more LEDs. In other embodiments, the guidance systems enable autonomous landing by providing various types of transmitted energy waves. In at least one embodiment, the guidance systems enable autonomous landing by providing a two-stage landing system that includes two or more types of transmitted energy.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés permettant l'atterrissage autonome d'un véhicule aérien sans pilote. Par exemple, des systèmes et des procédés selon l'invention permettent l'atterrissage autonome du véhicule aérien sans pilote en fournissant à une station au sol de véhicule aérien sans pilote plusieurs systèmes de guidage afin de guider l'atterrissage autonome. Dans certains modes de réalisation, les systèmes de guidage permettent un atterrissage autonome en utilisant une ou plusieurs DEL. Dans d'autres modes de réalisation, les systèmes de guidage permettent un atterrissage autonome en utilisant différents types d'ondes d'énergie transmise. Dans au moins un mode de réalisation, les systèmes de guidage permettent un atterrissage autonome en utilisant un système d'atterrissage à deux phases qui comprend deux types d'énergie transmise ou plus.
