The use of small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) in real-world applications is rising. This is most likely due to the ability of an sUAS to access areas quicker, safer and easier than a human. This rising demand of the sUAS, therefore, promotes opportunity for computer scientists to create programs that can help organizations complete tasks with less effort than before. This project was created to help complete the task of flying. Specifically, this project focused on whether an sUAS could autonomously fly a road in a forested environment.
