The present invention provides an AP handover method based on double wireless network interface cards. A mobile terminal actively scans the signal strength of an AP, compares the scanned signal strength with the signal strength of a currently accessed AP, and if the signal strength is greater than the signal strength of the current AP, starts handover; otherwise, continuously scans till the handover succeeds. To reduce the handover delay and in accordance with the characteristic that the moving paths are basically fixed in industrial application scenarios, the present invention provides a pre-learning mechanism, that is, before formal application, information such as the location of the AP and the handover sequence in the application scenario is learned and stored in a terminal node, so that specific scanning and handover can be implemented in formal application. The present invention solves the problem of rapid AP handover in the industrial mobile network scenario, the double wireless network interface cards are used to achieve handover without interruption, and the pre-learning mechanism is used in specific industrial application scenarios, so the scanning delay is further reduced.
