How to play Multiple Fixed-Wings UAV Animations in UAV animation block

29 views (last 30 days)
Greeting everyone!!!
I am trying to simulate waypoint following of Multiple fixed-wings UAVs in UAV Animation block which I found from example "Tuning Waypoint Follower for Fixed-Wing UAV" which can be using following command:
this example shows way point following using single Fixed wing UAV having uav animation block...
for multiple UAVs i have duplicated the same model but with different waypoints and i want to simulate/animate this model...kindly guide how can i accomodate multple UAVs in single UAV animation block...

Hi Hussain,
The UAV Animation block can only visualize one UAV at a time. If you want to visualize multiple UAVs, consider create a MATLAB function block and use plotTransforms function to draw multiple UAVs. You would need to use coder.extrinsic('plotTransforms') to declare that the visualization code will be executed using MATLAB instead of code generation.

Hi Anthony,
You can use a plot3 to visualize the UAV trajectory. But you would need to keep recording the UAV's pose during simulation inside the MATLAB function block. You can create a persistent variable and use it to store the last N poses of the UAV.
Best regards,

I've been working on a built-in example using MATLAB/Simulink 3D Animation Toolbox for object detection and tracking with an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle. Below there are the links to the GitHub repository and the open-access paper. The code is also available on MathWorks File Exchange.
