Paper Abstract

Generally speaking, Route Planning for unmanned aircraft generates an optimal or approved flight path between an initial position and a desired goal in view of various factors. A successful route planner must be able to handle a series of constraints on resultant road. This paper presents a route planning method for unmanned aircraft based on man- machine conversation. Firstly, we will introduce dynamic planning method and the whole process of panning an optimal 3D route according to the given criteria function. After this route is displayed on the computer screen, operator can modify the route to meet his need. Of course, his operation must accord with all constraints, computer will check out his operation by program and update the latest 3D route on the computer screen if the operation is effective. Secondly, we present the implementation of friendly man-machine interactive interface. The experiment attests that the system could plan a 3D route fitting the realistic conditions.
