MAVLink: a communication protocol to send telemetry (drone positions and other things) from a drone to other drones or to the ground station.
How does Enterprise PX4 differ from PX4? What are its benefits, and why did we create it in the first place?
The shift towards open source development is no longer exclusive to IT companies, but is permeating across nearly every industry today. Open source technologies are dramatically changing how products and services are developed and delivered, which is positively...
Auterion was the main sponsor this year and contributed presentations from ten Auterion engineers
This article will explain the basics to get started with MAVSDK-Java with no prior knowledge.
Auterion, with over 51% of contributions is leading the charge in the progress of PX4.
Simulations prepare operators for real-life deployment and give the confidence that in real drone operations flights can be executed safely. Learn about Multi-vehicle support simulation developed by Auterion.
Once you know how to run some examples with MAVSDK-Python, it’s time to go a bit deeper into the mechanics behind asyncio and all the different approaches to asynchronous programming.
This post will focus on showing, step by step, how to get up and running with a drone using MAVSDK-Python. MAVSDK is a set of libraries providing a high-level API to MAVLink, providing easy to learn programmatic access to vehicle information and telemetry.
To ensure the robustness and security of PX4, and the whole ecosystem around MAVLink, we applied fuzz testing against the MAVLink library.
MAVSDK is a set of libraries in different programming languages that provide a high-level API to MAVLink, providing easy to learn programmatic access to vehicle information and telemetry, and other operations.
On June 20 – 21 2019, the first-ever PX4 Developer Summit took place at ETH Zurich. Over 200 developers flew from all over the world to meet the largest drone community in the world.
Open standards and open source are the foundation of modern software development – including the Internet. However, the Internet did not happen by itself.
In 2018 Auterion was responsible for at least one-third of the total contributions to the PX4 ecosystem. Have a read at the technology improvements that Auterion brought to the community.
PX4 is becoming an industry standard, adopted by most of the players in the drone industry. The key maintainers of the community presented the 2019 roadmap of the largest open source drone community.
The webinar on the SDK was a lesson on how to write apps and control PX4 powered drones from a convenient SDK. The SDK supports different programming languages and can be used on mobile, desktop and servers.
A decade ago, little did I know that my student project at the Computer Vision and Geometry Lab at ETH Zurich would end up becoming the standards for the drone industry.
