Title: FLIGHT INDICATION APPARATUSES, SYSTEMS AND ASSOCIATED METHODS
Abstract:
Systems, apparatuses and methods for indicating a moveable device such as an UAV (20) are disclosed herein. The present technology provides an illumination system (200, 200a, 300, 400, 500) having a light source (201, 201a, 301, 601) and an illuminating component (203, 203a, 403, 503, 603). The light source (201, 201a) is carried by a UAV (20) and positioned to emit a light ray in a first direction (D1). The illuminating component (203, 203a, 403, 503, 603) is carried by a propeller (29, 39, 49, 59, 69) of the UAV (20). The illuminating component (203, 203a, 403, 503, 603) can include a light entrance portion (403a, 503a, 603a), a light transmission portion (403b, 503b, 603b), and a light exit portion(403c, 503c). The light entrance portion (403a, 503a, 603a) is positioned to receive the light ray from the light source (201, 201a, 301, 601), the light transmission portion (403b, 503b, 603b) is positioned to transmit the light ray to the light exit portion(403c, 503c), and the light exit portion(403c, 503c) is positioned to direct the light ray in a second direction(D2) so as to form a visual indication corresponding to the UAV(20).
