  • Publication number: 20200159223
    Abstract: A drone autonomously operates to track an object, track an object while being stealthy and/or observe the details of an object while maintaining communication at a rate equal to or greater than a threshold. A drone may operate to maintain the image of an object at or above a predetermined resolution in an image captured by a camera mounted on the drone and to maintain a wireless communication rate equal to or greater than a threshold rate. A drone may operate so that the sound intensity level caused by the operation of the drone is less than or equal to a sound intensity level threshold as perceived by an object (e.g., person, target, suspect) being tracked.

  • Publication number: 20190324460
    Abstract: A drone autonomously operates to track an object and/or observe the details of an object while maintaining communication at a rate equal to or greater than a threshold. A drone may operate to maintain the image of an object at or above a predetermined resolution in an image captured by a camera mounted on the drone and to maintain a wireless communication rate equal to or greater than a threshold rate. The object resolution may be a function of the position of the drone relative to the object. The position of the drone may include the altitude of the drone. The communication rate may be a function of the position of the drone relative to one or more base stations. The position of the drone relative to the object and to the base stations may be a function of altitude. A drone may autonomously move to capture an image of an object at an object resolution and maintain wireless communication at or above a threshold.
