Flying Penguins: Embedded Linux Applications for Autonomous UAVs - Clay McClure

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

With the commercial drone market growing 50% year over year, upstart drone companies need inexpensive and mature platforms for rapidly delivering custom UAV applications. While the required infrastructure is readily available from several open-source projects, some more mature and well documented than others, understanding how the various pieces fit together remains a challenge. This talk will help researchers, hobbyists, and entrepreneurs develop high-level UAV applications by demonstrating how to integrate the PX4 autopilot and the Robot Operating System (ROS) into a full-featured autonomous flight control system.
