Method and system for securely authorising the activation of a critical function on a drone
The system has a ground control station (100) with an activation module (130) comprising a signing module for generating an activation message to activate critical functions (A-1B, A-1C, A-2B) for a designated effector module from a set of effector modules (230, 240, 330) of robotized platforms (200, 300). Each effector module has a verification unit for authenticating the message from the station. The verification unit verifies whether the received message is a signed integrated message for the effector module and authorizes the realization of the critical functions based on needs. An independent claim is also included for a method for authorizing activation of a critical function by a robotized platform.

Taking-off and landing system for drone, and operating method thereof
The present invention relates to a taking-off and landing system for a drone and, more specifically, to: a system in which a product is transported by a drone, in an unmanned way, to a device, possessed by a user, for enabling the drone to take-off and land; and an operating method therefor. The present invention comprises: a base (11) for providing a floor on which a drone (30) takes off and lands; a storage unit (13) for storing an ID of the base; and a first short range communication module (15) for wirelessly communicating with the drone accessing the base within a predetermined distance, wherein the first short range communication module transmits, to the drone, the ID of the base when the drone comes within a predetermined distance, and transmits a landing guide signal when a landing intention signal is received from the drone.
