This book presents theory and algorithms for flight control and planning for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and smart autonomous aircraft systems. The book begins with a brief overview of the current status of UAVs, autonomous systems, and smart aircraft. Later chapters deal with modeling, flight control, flight planning, and flight safety. Each chapter provides mathematical background for understanding the content, along with case studies. The book is accessible to researchers, practitioners, and advanced undergraduate engineering students, as well as PhD level students in UAV or aerial robotics courses.
