Follow-me function of drones is new and attractive for selfie drone users, where the drone autonomously follows and capture the user. Currently the products use the difference between GPS's in the drone and user side mobile GCS, but the targeting accuracy is not satisfactory owing to the low accuracy of GPS data, often the order of ten meters. We designed a new follow-me mode algorithm that utilizes the accuracy of visual tracking algorithm and the reliability of GPS-based. The experiment shows that proposed follow-me can capture much accurately the target user in the center of video content than GPS-only methods, and recover the vision algorithm failure quickly in 5-10 seconds.
