Make your ideas fly - Developing software for quadcopters with Eclipse

Session details
Session Type: 
Experience level: 

The Crazyflie 2.0 is a nano quadcopter and a flying open source development platform. It's firmware has been developed with Eclipse CDT. Since there is also a Java API available it seems only natural to use it in an Eclipse plugin. Will there be a live demo and a flying quadcopter? Absolutely! :)

Crazyflie 2.0 has been invented by Bitcraze ( a swedish electronics start-up company. It features a modular design (similar to Arduino), powerful and robust hardware, polyglot and cross-platform software support and has been used in different private, academic science and research projects around the world.

It's not only an open source project, with source code and hardware design both documented and available, but also all of it's development tools are open source (except for iOS).

This talk will cover the experiences and challenges of using Eclipse CDT to develop the firmware, the current status and future outlook of Crazyflie related plugins.
