Title: METHOD FOR CONTROLLING AN UNMANNED TRANSPORT VEHICLE AND UNMANNED TRANSPORT VEHICLE SYSTEM THEREFOR
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for controlling an unmanned transport vehicle (F), and an unmanned transport vehicle system therefor. Said method comprises the steps of: sensing at least one real scene (S) by means of at least one image sensing device (12, 14) mounted on said transport vehicle (F); generating image data representing said real scene (S); directly and/or indirectly transmitting (T, Tr, Tw) the image data (4) of said real scene (S) to at least one receiver device (4) remote from said transport vehicle (F) and associated with an operator (P) remote therefrom, and receiving said image data (4) therewith; directly and/or indirectly transmitting the received data (4) of said real scene (S) to at least one display device (8, 56) worn on the head (K), in particular, directly in front of the eyes, of the operator (P); generating a picture (62) of said real scene (S); and displaying said picture (62) of said real scene (S) on said display device (8, 56).
