A Novel Method for SUAV Path Planning Based on MPC
Path planning has always being one of the most significant study fields in Small UAV researching. And Model Predictive Control (MPC) is a special strategy in obtaining the control actions which were achieved by solving a finite horizon optimal control problem at each instant. The paper advanced a novel method which was called Model Predictive Path Planning Strategy (MPPS) based on MPC to deal with the SUAV path planning problem and a responding predictive planner was put forward to generate an effective path for SUAV in simulative urban environment. The results of the simulation show that the advanced method can be used to plan path for SUAV.
