Title (EN) LEADING DRONE METHOD
(FR) PROCÉDÉ POUR DRONE DE TÊTE
Abstract:
(EN) Systems and methods are provided for least one leading drone configured to move to a leading drone future location based on a future location of a base station. A set of base station future locations may form a base station path for the base station to traverse. Also, a set of leading drone future locations may form a leading drone path for the leading drone to traverse. The base station's future location may be anticipated from a prediction or a predetermination. The leading drone, navigating along the leading drone path, may collect sensor data and/or perform tasks. Accordingly, the leading drone may move ahead of the base station in motion, as opposed to following or remaining with the base station.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés pour un ou plusieurs drones de tête conçus pour se déplacer vers un emplacement futur de drone de tête sur la base d'un emplacement futur d'une station de base. Un ensemble d'emplacements futurs de station de base peut former un trajet de station de base à traverser par la station de base. En outre, un ensemble d'emplacements futurs de drone de tête peut former un trajet de drone de tête à traverser par le drone de tête. L'emplacement futur de la station de base peut être anticipé à partir d'une prédiction ou d'une prédétermination. Le drone de tête, naviguant le long du trajet de drone de tête, peut collecter des données de capteur et/ou effectuer des tâches. En conséquence, le drone de tête peut se déplacer en avant de la station de base en mouvement, plutôt que de suivre la station de base ou de rester avec la station de base.
