We are going to be investigating Active Track in more detail now.
I want to say this isn’t going to be an extremely comprehensive review of Active Track. All I will say is that It includes tons of video that is awesome.
It Works Excellent on Individuals
We’ve’t had more than perhaps one hour of Active Trail testing. But from the evaluations that we did, it appears to be functioning as expected. For among the evaluations, We monitored a man running down the road at about 8mph. The tracking works quite nicely when following folks about, like I anticipated.
Astonishingly, subjects can be tracked by it when other things or individuals occasionally pass through the framework and cover up the initial tracking point. If you cover up the initial tracking point for greater than a couple of seconds, it’s going to finally give up and quit trying to find the goal, but in every situation where we’d someone get in the way, it was not unable to determine the difference and disregard another man.
One thing that appears to help when monitoring individuals will be to have the man that you’re after pressing monitoring spin around, go. This should give an improved notion of what you seem like from different angles to the system. You could attempt something similar for monitoring things like automobiles, but instead of having the auto rotate, the Phantom 4 can rotate the automobile around.
When It Gets Lost
Up to now, it’s been actually interesting trying Active Track out, but there’s one thing I noticed which you should be cautious about. When monitoring issues that warp and shrink in size, occasionally the Phantom 4 will begin speeding forwards extremely fast. It attempts to slow down and understands this, but it generally ends up losing the goal and passing up the matter. To be on the safe side, I’d remain within an open place if the issue you want to monitor is fast changing in size or shape.
The Phantom 4 appears to don’t have any trouble monitoring different types of individuals. The only thing that it actually does’t enjoy is when you wear white and black striped tops. I believe the fine elements in the top allow it to be hard to monitor because the camera normally is to see them. After I first attempted monitoring someone wearing a shirt in this way, it’d get a solid lock on the goal, but after trying several times it looked like it was not unable to determine the best way to monitor better.
We attempted doing this when the drone was’t going and it worked out good. When monitoring from above it worked fine. High speed racing drone trailing is just impossible though. I believe we’re still several years from seeing drones that can monitor something quick and as small as an FPV racing drone.
