Path planning for small unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) becomes a difficult problem when accounting for wind. Wind can affect the path quality in a nonlinear manner requiring extended segment lengths for accurate following. A method is presented to find near-optimal paths through stochastic optimization based on a training set. In general the method applies to… CONTINUE READING
