  • Publication number: 20210034052
    Abstract: An information processing device includes a processor configured to obtain a first point of interest to which a first user pays attention in a first image and obtain a second point of interest to which a second user pays attention in a second image. The first image is shot by a first flight body controlled by a first terminal operated by the first user, and the second image is shot by a second flight body controlled by a second terminal operated by the second user. The processor is further configured to determine whether the first point of interest and the second point of interest are a common point of interest, and prompt information related to the second flight body to the first terminal in response to the first point of interest and the second point of interest being the common point of interest.

  • Publication number: 20200150662
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a flying body for detecting a living body. The flying body includes a sensor unit, that detects living body information related to the living body; a support component, that supports the sensor unit and is retractable; a gimbal, that rotatably supports the support component; a processing unit, that performs processing related to detection of the living body information; and a camera unit, that captures images. The processing unit makes the camera unit capture an image of an investigation area, controls the flight of the flying body such that the flying body approaches the investigation area, makes the support component extend to an investigation target located in the investigation area, and makes the sensor unit, which is supported by the gimbal supported by the extended support component, detect the living body information.
