Title: BROADCASTING GEOLOCATION INFORMATION IN A RADIO FRAME TRANSMITTED FROM AN UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLE
Abstract:
Broadcasting geolocation information of an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) from the UAV by determining current geolocation of the UAV by communicating with a geolocation service and utilizing the geolocation service to geolocate the UAV. Then the UAV prepares a radio frame that includes geolocation information identifying the current geolocation of the UAV and other information associated with the UAV using a radio protocol of one of a 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) radio protocol, a WiFi radio protocol, a wireless personal area network protocol and a low-power wide-area network protocol and transmits the radio frame to broadcast the current geolocation of the UAV.
