Title (EN) GEOGRAPHIC AREA MONITORING SYSTEMS AND METHODS THROUGH INTERCHANGING TOOL SYSTEMS BETWEEN UNMANNED VEHICLES
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS DE SURVEILLANCE DE ZONE GÉOGRAPHIQUE PAR ÉCHANGE DE SYSTÈMES D'OUTILS ENTRE VÉHICULES SANS PILOTE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)In some embodiments, unmanned aerial task systems are provided that comprise multiple unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) each comprising: a UAV control circuit; a motor; and a propulsion system coupled with the motor and configured to enable the respective UAVs to move themselves; and wherein a first UAV control circuit of a first UAV of the multiple UAVs is configured to identify a second UAV carrying a first tool system configured to perform a first function, cause a notification to be communicated to the second UAV directing the second UAV to transfer the first tool system to the first UAV, and direct a first propulsion system of the first UAV to couple with the first tool system being transferred from the second UAV.
(FR)Dans certains modes de réalisation, l'invention concerne des systèmes de tâches aériennes sans pilote qui comprennent de multiples véhicules aériens sans pilote (UAV) comprenant chacun : un circuit de commande d'UAV; un moteur; et un système de propulsion couplé au moteur et configuré pour permettre aux UAV respectifs de se déplacer eux-mêmes; un premier circuit de commande d'UAV d'un premier UAV parmi les multiples UAV est configuré pour identifier un second UAV portant un premier système d'outil configuré pour effectuer une première fonction, faire qu'une notification soit communiquée au second UAV ordonnant au second UAV de transférer le premier système d'outil au premier UAV, et ordonner au premier système de propulsion du premier UAV de se coupler au premier système d'outil qui est transféré depuis le second UAV.
