Research on Unmanned Flight Observation and Data Transfer System

Ikuo Yamamoto, Takunori Tsuji


The authors developed low cost unmanned helicopter, real time video data transmitting system and a new type flying robots. We also had held field experiment on this system. Since the proposal system can perform unmanned observation, there is no risk for developing the second disaster. Even if the system should receive damage, it is small size and a low cost, so an observation risk can be reduced to the minimum.
