Abstract : The landing on carrier is a very difficult task even for trained pilots. This paper presents a method to land automatically using aircraft sensors and three visual features inspired by visual cues used by pilots. These features whose link with the aircraft state is established, are introduced in a control scheme using a linearized aircraft model. The control law demonstrates a large convergence domain using simulated visual features and a 3D tracker applied on synthetic images.
