In this survey, we will survey some recent progress on the navigation problem and conformal vector fields on Finsler manifolds, and their applications in the classifications of some Finsler metrics of scalar (resp. constant) flag curvature. https://ajmc.aut.ac.ir/article_4457_c005dc29913ec40589af2ac89615f065.pdf
