Claim of US Patent No. 10,705,524

1. A task execution method, applied to a moveable object, and comprising: obtaining a task list, wherein the task list comprises at least two to-be-executed tasks; determining a task mode, wherein the task mode comprises a task set mode and a task flow mode, the task set mode refers to that the moveable object executes the at least two to-be-executed tasks according to an optimal path, and the task flow mode refers to that the moveable object executes the at least two to-be-executed tasks according to a user-specified sequence; and executing the at least two to-be-executed tasks according to the determined task mode, wherein the executing the at least two to-be-executed tasks according to the determined task mode comprises: determining, when one of the at least two to-be-executed tasks is completed, whether remaining energy of the moveable object is capable of supporting the moveable object in completing a task that has not been completed in the at least two to-be-executed tasks and returning; and if the remaining energy of the moveable object is not capable of supporting the moveable object in completing the task that has not been completed in the at least two to-be-executed tasks and returning, sending a prompt warning of insufficient energy to a control terminal, determining whether a number of times of sending the prompt warning of insufficient energy to the control terminal exceeds a preset threshold and if the number of times or a duration of sending the prompt warning of insufficient energy to the control terminal exceeds the preset threshold, control the moveable object to cancel execution of the task that has not been completed and return the movable object automatically; after the determination of whether the number of times of sending the prompt warning of insufficient energy to the control terminal exceeds the preset threshold, determine a task that has not been completed in the task list and if the remaining energy of the movable object is capable of completing the task that has not been completed, perform a next task in the task list by the movable object according to the determined task mode.
