The PX4 Ecosystem @ Virtual Summit

The PX4 Autopilot is the most widely adopted open-source flight controller. PX4 has a complete ecosystem of components that has been driving industry standards for unmanned vehicles.

Provides full flight control and mission planning for any MAVLink enabled drone. 

Pixhawk open standards provide hardware specifications and guidelines for drone systems.

The library provides a simple API, providing programmatic access to vehicle information and telemetry, and control over missions, movement and other operations.

MAVLink is a very lightweight messaging protocol for communicating with drones (and between onboard drone components).

Open lightweight protocol designed for reliable intravehicular communication

The Robot Operating System (ROS) is a set of software libraries and tools that help you build robot applications.
