Presentation: Linux Drones & the "App Store" for Drones

Track: Drones / Time: Friday 14:30 - 16:40 / Location: Graanbeurszaal

Drones are proliferating and as embedded Linux computers decrease in size, consumption and cost it becomes possible to create small and capable flying computers; robots that would simplify the transfer of knowledge and allow a big community of experts to jump into robotic application development using Linux.

In this talk Víctor Mayoral Vilches will introduce the Linux side of the APM (MultiPlatform Autopilot) autopilot; an open source project with about 700.000 lines of code and more than a hundred contributors that supports three classes of autonomous drones:
copters, planes and rovers.

Víctor will also motivate the potential of using ROS as the SDK for robot application development and provide an overview of the new "app store" for robots resulting from a collaboration between Canonical, the Open Source Robotics Foundation and hardware manufacturers such as Erle Robotics. Together with the capabilities, Víctor will provide a hands-on demo session on how to create a drone application and deploy it to the drone.
