How to set up initial positions in an environment:

Following module can be used to dictate initial positions for drone in the environment

  1. Locate the python module with the name of the environment and add to the orig_ip array. Each member of the orig_ip array is one initial position corresponding to (x, y, theta) where x and y are the positional coordinates and theta is the orientation (yaw). Make sure that you don’t modify the first initial position commented as Player start.
