Abstract: Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are now able to follow paths planned for it without human control throughout the process. However, these paths planned may follow paths which are not accessible or dangerous. There is also no control over the UAV’s path based on the path of other UAVs, resulting in potential collisions. To overcome these issues, a MATLAB algorithm is written to plan paths along roads and avoid intersections of paths for the UAVs. In this FYP, a user-friendly and highly customisable MATLAB algorithm is written for users to easily vary the inputs and generate paths for drones which may be used in software such as PX4 for mission execution. In the MATLAB simulations, the UAVs can follow car roads to their destinations while avoiding intersections of paths.
