Patent Searching and Data

Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2017/208754
Kind Code:
An information processing device 20 is provided, for example, to a vehicle 40. A control unit of the information processing device 20 provides flight control of an unmanned aerial vehicle 50, moves the same to a destination, and acquires an image from the unmanned aerial vehicle 50. On the basis of an image of the destination or destination surroundings, the control unit may, for example, adjust an arrival time at the destination according to congestion conditions, or provide movement guidance of the vehicle to an open space at the destination. Additionally, on the basis of an image that was imaged after moving the unmanned aerial vehicle within the destination, the control unit searches for a movement route within the destination and sets a detected movement route for the moving body, which is used for moving within the destination. When an occupant of the vehicle disembarks, the control unit changes control authority over the unmanned aerial vehicle to an information processing device of the disembarking occupant, and continues to provide flight control of the unmanned aerial vehicle. The imaging direction of the unmanned aerial vehicle and the image size of the image are set according to the layout and size of a display unit that is provided to the information processing device. Convenience when using a destination can thus be improved.
