This chapter presents an automatic take-off and landing system for an unmanned helicopter using visual servo control. Cameras are placed on the ground, and a static-eye configuration is set up. A vision-based control method with occlusion handling is implemented. The reference for the altitude in take-offs and landings is specialized to operate in ground effect. An experimental result demonstrates that the helicopter is controlled accurately.
