This tiny daughter board allows anyone to create ready-to-fly autopilots with support for Dronecode’s APM and PX4 (a work in progress) flight stacks on top of the inexpensive […]


  Erle Robotics has taken much from this open hardware environment that has been created around the Dronecode Foundation and we are willing to give back. It’s worth mentioning that one of the most relevant players of the current situation is the PX4 team led by Lorenz Meier which has truly been an inspiration for many and […]


The Robot Operative System (ROS) is an open-source, framework for robot application development maintained by the Open Source Robotics Foundation (OSRF). A ROS system is comprised of a number of independent nodes, each of which communicates with the other nodes using a publish/subscribe messaging model that can be deployed over different computers. ROS was originally […]

Members of the Erle Robotics team are among the main contributors of the switch to Linux and now Erle Robotics has officially joined the Dronecode Foundation. The Dronecode brings together existing open […]
