Arduino follows human movement

Hello,

I’m trying to make an arduino project, which controls drone to follow human straight over a head, about 15 cm in distance.

I was looking for IR sensor. Is it good idea?

Has anybody done something like that or have a knowledge and can to share it? I’m looking for components and basic source code. Any sugestions would be very helpful!

Thanks in advance!

Have a look at the advice and comments here.

Thank you AWOL.

I've read that discussion. In general it's informative, but don't make any shorter paths to complete result.

It explains the issues involved and why this is a difficult problem. What else are you expecting? If you're hoping somebody will link you to an easy answer I think you're wasting your time because there isn't one.
