4. A method for controlling a first unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and a second UAV, comprising:
receiving digital images of a flight area of the first UAV and the second UAV captured by an image capturing device;
determining a first flight position of the first UAV and a second flight position of the second UAV in the flight area based on the digital images;
comparing the first flight position with a first predetermined position to set a first flight path;
comparing the second flight position with a second predetermined position to set a second flight path;
determining whether the first flight path and the second flight path have an intersection point;
determining whether a first distance between the intersection point and the first flight position and a second distance between the intersection point and the second flight position are less than a predetermined distance when the first flight path and the second flight path have an intersection point; and
controlling one of the first UAV and the second UAV to hover when both of the first distance and the second distance are less than the predetermined distance.
