How to obtain acceleration and angular velocity control inputs to track a fixed-wing UAV trajectory?

5 views (last 30 days)
I want to track a given trajectory for a fixed-wing UAV. This example from UAV toolbox does the exact task, but I am not able to understand what are it's control inputs (u). Can someone please explain how can I obtain these control inputs or is there any other way to get the tracking done in a simple manner and obtain the acceleration and angular velocity inputs?

Hi Shubham,
You can check the exampleHelperUAVDerivatives.m file in the example you referred to. This file should be in the same folder you had the example mlx file.
You can also check the reference page for more details on the fixed wing kinematic model we used in the example and check the example for a Simulink implementation of a similar controller.
