Title
(EN) GUIDANCE SYSTEM FOR LANDING A DRONE
(FR) SYSTEME DE GUIDAGE POUR L'ATTERRISSAGE D'UN DRONE
Abstract
(EN)
The invention relates to a method for automatically guiding a drone (10) with a computer (CPU), with a view to landing the drone (10) on a docking and recharging platform (20), the drone comprising a first luminous means (12A) that emits a first light signal and a second luminous means (12B) that emits a second light signal different from the first light signal, the first luminous means (12A) and the second luminous means (12B) being fastened at two separate points to the drone (10), the station receiving images captured by a camera (30), said method comprising: - analyzing the images captured by the camera (30) so as to locate the first and second luminous means (12A, 12B), - determining the position and orientation of the drone (10) depending on the determined position of the first and second luminous means (12A, 12B), - generating, with the computer (CPU), piloting instructions intended for the drone (10), said instructions being configured to guide the drone towards the docking and recharging platform (20), - transmitting said instructions to the drone (10), - the drone (10) receiving and implementing said instructions.
