Simulation results illustrating the ability of the approach to cluster packages near a road network. In the figure on the left, all packages transitioned from drogue to main parachute at the same altitude. In the figure on the right, the transition altitude for each package was selected so that the wind field shaped the flight path so that each package landed as close as possible to a road.
