Title
(EN) DRONE-BASED TRACKING
(FR) POURSUITE FAISANT INTERVENIR UN DRONE
Abstract
(EN) A computer is programmed to determine a trajectory of a moving target based on data from one or more vehicle sensors. The computer is programmed to deploy an aerial drone from the vehicle to track the moving target based on the determined trajectory.
(FR) Selon l'invention, un ordinateur est programmé pour déterminer une trajectoire d'une cible mobile sur la base de données provenant d'un ou de plusieurs capteurs de véhicule. L'ordinateur est programmé pour déployer un drone aérien à partir du véhicule pour suivre la cible mobile en fonction de la trajectoire déterminée.
