This paper describes the design, building and testing of a Drone Flight Navigation (DFN) system used to control the movement of livestock away from the ploughing fields. The inputs to the DFN system include different sounds of livestock to be removed from the fields. The output of the system will be the irritating sounds to the livestock and also deploy a rotating umbrella-like cloth and flashing LED lights to scare the animals even more. The input and output sounds are stored in a database and can be updated with preferred sounds. We have successfully simulated and programmed a prototype DFN system using ALTERA UP1 Development Board. Also on this paper, we discussed drone power management system (DPMS) which ensures that the drone has enough battery power before each flight. For future developments, GPS and video camera capabilities can also be included into the design so that the farmer will be able to observe what the system is seeing and possibly give live instructions.
