Planning and Control

Guidance models and navigation, trajectory and waypoint following

Plan and execute UAV flights using guidance motion models for fixed-wing and multirotor UAVs. Fly predefined missions using waypoint and trajectory-following algorithms. For an example using an RRT path planner that plans and simulates a flight in a city setting, see Motion Planning with RRT for Fixed-Wing UAV.
