In this chapter, the authors present analysis of reasons for deficient safety of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and further ground an approach to improve the safety by intellectualizing operation of the control system. Intellectualization results from the rational control owing to machine vision means used. A conception of building algorithms for visual evaluating position of the UAV that is equipped with a computer vision system is suggested. Algorithms are illustrated by related investigation of an adapted UAV. Both hardware and software means for realizing the visual estimation algorithms are presented.
