Zainal Rasyid Mahayuddin, Hairina Mohd Jais, Haslina Arshad


This paper concerns about the human pilot or remote control system in UAV navigation. Demands for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) are increasing tremendously in aviation industry and research area. UAV is a flying machine that can fly with no pilot onboard and can be controlled by ground-based operators. In this paper, a comparison was made between different proposed remote control systems and devices to navigate multirotor UAV, like hand-controllers, gestures and body postures techniques, and vision-based techniques. The overall reviews discussed in this paper have been studied in various research sources related to UAV and its navigation system. Every method has its pros and cons depends on the situation. At the end of the study, those methods will be analyzed and the best method will be chosen in term of accuracy and efficiency.


UAV; remote-controller; navigation system; remotely piloted vehicle.
