So far, most of us must have heard Huawei’s brand name with reference to any smartphone or some telecom equipment. Huawei has established a name for itself in these two sectors. However, what many of us are unaware of is that the Chinese tech giant is also venturing into the drone technology field, referred to by the name of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV).
On the 18th of July in 2018, Huawei had gone ahead and raised an application for a patent with drones and technologies. Well, it looks like Huawei has got its results for the same now. On the 1st of January this year, the Chinese tech giant got the patent registered and published under China’s name. The latest patent titled UAV Control System and Method bears the patent ID CN110737212B. With this, undoubtedly, Huawei has got a good start to 2021.
As is evident from the name, the patent revolves around drones’ working mechanisms and how they are being monitored and controlled. It also explains the AI-powered mechanisms like handling the data operations of the entire drone system. The patent also involves numerous activities that satisfy various user requirements.
The patent consists of a system composed of many modules, including a task component, a sensor component, a collective component composed of many computing modules, and many more such units. The system’s functional aspect consists of the first action module, the first function module, and the first response module.
How does this system work?
The main task component or unit situated within the system is programmed to divide the task into multiple tasks. The first action module is responsible for transferring the details of these tasks to the first functional module and the first response module.
Based on the target action received by the sensor component, appropriate data is being sent to it, which in turn transfers the same information to the first functional module. The first functional component then communicates with the computing unit to decode the first functional module’s data processing mechanism. The data processing capacity of the AI chip determines the depth of the complete data processing technique. To explain all of this in a simple manner, the AI chip’s complete data processing technique is handled.
The first response component is responsible for providing all the information related to the drone’s multiple controls. The information received after communicating with the drone pilots based on the status information and data related to the environment and actions.
Back in December, Huawei patented another drone technology related to its identification component and storage mechanisms. The patent was registered under Huawei’s name titled ‘Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Identification Module and Storage Method.’ The patent reflects the drone identification process’s functionality, drone tracking mechanisms, and the storage mechanisms involved during the period of its existence.
Presently, no other information related to this drone technology equipped within the latest patent has been officially announced by Huawei. It looks like for now. It is meant to only stay within the patent limits.
