Follow waypoints for UAV

**Library:**UAV Toolbox / Algorithms

The Waypoint Follower block follows a set of waypoints for an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) using a lookahead point. The block calculates the lookahead point, desired course, and desired yaw given a UAV position, a set of waypoints and a lookahead distance. Specify a set of waypoints and tune the lookahead distance and transition radius parameters for navigating the waypoints. The block supports both multirotor and fixed-wing UAV types.
