Title: REMOTE-CONTROL TYPE UNMANNED AIRCRAFT AND CONTROL HANDOVER METHOD FOR REMOTE-CONTROL TYPE UNMANNED AIRCRAFT
Abstract:
The purpose of the present invention is to provide a remote-control type unmanned aircraft and a control handover method for the remote-control type unmanned aircraft such that the control thereof can be smoothly handed over among multiple control terminals. The remote-control type unmanned aircraft 10, which can be controlled from each of multiple control terminals, is equipped with a control handover means, that is, a program for handing over the control among multiple control terminals, wherein the control handover means has: a procedure for transitioning to a hovering state so as to stay in the air at the same spot when a flight control signal is no longer received from one of the multiple control terminals which is being used for performing the control, and for waiting for reception of the next flight control signal from another control terminal; and a procedure for transitioning to a next flight state from the hovering state upon receipt of the next flight control signal.
