Madrid, June 2020

The PX4 Developer Summit is a 2-day event in which professionals form all over the world exchange technological insights of the drone sector.

With around 50 speakers from companies like NXP, Microsoft, Open Robotics, Auterion, Dronecode and of course PX4, the topics vary from software development to hardware components.

At this year’s summit, eProsima CEO Jaime Martin and Nuno Marques, Founder and Lead Software Engineer of Drone Solutions, will present “Bringing micro-ROS to PX4-based flying systems”.

The talk will cover the basic concepts around the micro-RTPS bridge used to integrate PX4 into the DDS world, and the proposal of using “a more mature, flexible and secure interface with DDS”, named micro-ROS.
