Abstract

This paper presents an ergonomic remote control technique based on using IMUs (Inertial Measurement Units) both on helicopter and human hand. This technique provides a new remote control method for horizontal rotors equipped UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles). The neurobiological aspects and inspiration are also presented. In our experiments, we compared different types of remote control interfaces using a modified DraganFlyer IV quadrotor helicopter which adequately represents the universal mathematical model for that kind of flying vehicles called PVTOL (Planar Vertical Take-Off and Landing) problem. Different metric-based comparisons verify that using the IMU based interface even beginners can better control the helicopter.
