Title: UNMANNED AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS AND METHODS TO INTERACT WITH SPECIFICALLY INTENDED OBJECTS
Abstract:
In some embodiments, systems, apparatuses, methods, and processes are provided to control and allocate UASs. In some embodiments, a system to control unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), comprises: one or more wireless transceivers configured to communicate with the UAS; a control circuit coupled with the transceiver(s); and a memory coupled to the control circuit and storing computer instructions that when executed by the control circuit cause the control circuit to perform the steps of: receive sensor data captured by at least one sensor of a UAS; determine, from the sensor data, unique identification of an object at a predefined location; and confirm, from the sensor data, that the identified object is an expected object expected at the predefined location.
