TUBITAK will particularly focus on AI based control and path planning requirements for drones and vehicles. TUBITAK will also focus on requirements for drone and ground station communications.A ground control station (GCS) will be used, which provides the facilities for human and/or AI based control of drones, task and path planning and pre-flight processing (payload settings, battery charge...). The GCS will include the Human-Machine Interface, computer, 4G/5G communication module, video capture card and aerials for the control, video and data links tothe drones.

Drones’ path planning will be realized with AI techniques by considering its control points before and while on duty. Considering that minimum energy and maximum efficiency are needed because of limited runtime constraints of drones, it’s crucial to guarantee to run the optimal routing algorithm which maximizes the throughput from task.
