Unmanned aircraft is a non-crew aircraft or drone. It can be controlled from the distance or fly alone. A non-pilot aircraft can fly independently using a pre-programmed flight plan or complex autonomous dynamical systems. The development of unmanned aerial vehicles has begun primarily by the army to reduce costs and human casualties. Suffice it to say that the cost of maintaining and making an unmanned aircraft is a tenth of the cost of a modern aircraft. The biggest challenge of modeling is, of course, navigation and positioning of unmanned aerial vehicles, whether it is traffic or civilian use. Following the historical development to date has demonstrated that progress has been made towards the use of unmanned aerial vehicles in transport science. Today, there has been an increase in the number and type of sensors that unloaded aircraft can contain, and thus the spread of their use, primarily in the observation of the roads in the final analysis of the collected data.
