Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) can be modeled and controlled using UAV Library for Robotics System Toolbox™ functions, objects, and blocks. You can simulate a reduced-order guidance model for fixed-wing and multirotor UAVs that approximates a closed-loop autopilot controller with a kinematic model. Generate control commands, UAV states, and environmental inputs using the given functions. A waypoint follower is also provided to execute flight missions based on pre-defined waypoints.
Using UAV Algorithms requires you to install the UAV Library
for Robotics System Toolbox. To install add-ons, use
roboticsAddons and select
the desired add-on.

Simulation models often need different levels of fidelity during different development stages.
This example designs a waypoint following controller for a fixed-wing unammned aerial vehicle (UAV) using the UAV Guidance Model and Waypoint Follower blocks from the UAV Library for Robotics System Toolbox.
