Dronecode Welcomes New Members and Community Growth

Today Dronecode is excited to announce 11 new corporate and nonprofit members to the foundation.

Industry-leading organizations and start-ups like Parrot, Walkera, and Team Black Sheep have joined 3DR, Intel, Qualcomm and others to create an industry-standard, shared open source platform for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Even groups that compete against one another are working together as part of Dronecode. Change is not just coming in the future, it’s taking place now. Think advances in vision processing, obstacle avoidance, and environmental and situational awareness: Dronecode members are delivering on all of these today.

Last fall Dronecode was established as an umbrella organization to allow organizations and developers to collaboratively engage in the development and direction of industry-leading open source flight control software. I was fortunate enough to join Dronecode, which is a Linux Foundation Collaborative Project, as its program manager earlier this year. I’m enjoying the chance to engage with an energetic and vibrant community at the bleeding edge of UAV technology development.
