Title: AN IMPROVED METHOD OF MANAGING A FLYING DRONE AND AN IMPROVED DRONE SYSTEM
Abstract:
A method of managing a flying drone (DRO) using a remote controller (REM), the drone being adapted to define initial directions fixed in space which include initial forward, backward, left and right directions (FD, BD, LD, RD), the remote controller having an input module (INP) defining forward, backward, left and right inputs (F, B, L, R) and at least one operating mode in which the respective actuation of the forward, backward, left and right inputs (F, B, L, R) is configured to cause the drone to move along the corresponding initial forward, backward, left or right direction (FD, BD, LD, RD), the remote controller defining a remote direction (REMD) fixed relative to the remote controller and which varies as a function of the orientation of the remote controller around a vertical axis. The method comprises, while one operating mode of at least one operating mode is implemented: monitoring an orientation angle defined between a reference direction (REF) fixed relative to the initial directions and the remote direction around a vertical axis, and upon detection of the verification of at least one condition including a condition according to which the orientation angle has left a predetermined range, redefining the initial directions by rotating the initial directions by a predetermined angle around a vertical axis.
