Amazon shows us the first sketches of its minidron capable of finding children

Amazon minidron

Amazon continues to focus its development in artificial intelligence towards the creation of solutions that can help any human being rather than entertain them. Thanks to this idea, today they present us with a sketch of their new patent, you have it right at the beginning of the extended post, where they literally wanted to create a Alexa gifted drone that he would be able, autonomously, to find any lost child.

Let's put ourselves in a situation for a moment, imagine that we are in a stadium full of people, well in a concert, soccer game, basketball ... in a procession, shopping center ... and for a moment our son lets go of the hand, something a lot more common than it may seem, and we lose sight of it. Without a doubt one of the most distressing situations for parents than you can imagine. Given this situation, instead of looking for our son asking people, security, through our eyes ... Amazon simply proposes take out a minidron and tell him to find our son.

Amazon publishes a patent showing a minidron capable of searching for lost children.

Amazon patent

As can be seen from the patent, Amazon specifies that the drone will be capable of recognize voice commands What 'find my car'although unfortunately they have not specified how he will get the task done. Taking into account that it will be equipped with Alexa, it is not surprising that it can have access to other types of artificial intelligence platforms that allow it, thanks to its small camera, to be able to perform some type of tracking of the license plate by visual recognition.

One detail that draws the attention of the patent is, as you can see in the image, that they wanted to place the drone right on the shoulder of a policeman, specifically on a loudspeaker through which the drone would receive the orders. As a detail, tell you that, for now, we are only talking about a patent that may or may not come true in the more or less near future.
