Claim of US Patent No. 10,669,040

1. An aircraft, comprising:a sensor configured to detect a flight height of the aircraft;
a light emitting apparatus;
a luminance sensing apparatus; and
a processor configured to:
obtain ambient luminance data by using the luminance sensing apparatus, wherein the ambient luminance data indicates ambient luminance of an environment;
determine whether the ambient luminance data satisfies a luminance value required for normal running of a vision system of the aircraft; and
turn on the light emitting apparatus based on a determination that the ambient luminance data does not satisfy the luminance value required for normal running of the vision system;
wherein the processor is further configured to:
determine whether the flight height is less than a preset low-altitude height threshold; and
turn off the light emitting apparatus based on a determination that the flight height is greater than the preset low-altitude height threshold.
