Abstract: There has been an increase in interest in small unmanned aerial vehicles (SUAV). This is due to their high potential for urban deployments. Navigating SUAVs in a cluttered environment can be challenging, and at times hazardous as compared to flights in open spaces. This research aims to develop a Human-SUAV system using commercially-off-the-shelf (COTS) autopilot module for urban deployment study. Studies showed that the COTS autopilot modules are capable of delivering a deliberative control architecture for waypoint navigation. However, the capability of reactive behavior is absent from these modules. Thus, the research focuses on the implementation of the deliberative control architecture and to incorporate reactive behaviors to the autopilot control architecture.
