PX4 Distributed Architecture with uORB over CAN - Peter van der Perk, NXP Semiconductors

Feedback form is now closed.
In this talk I will introduce to the concept of combining the uORB API middleware with UAVCANv1 that acts as the transport to create a modular distributed system using the PX4 ecosystem. The goal is to create PX4 enabled node's leveraging the existing PX4 middleware infrastructure, such as the uORB messaging API, drivers, algorithms (e.g. EKF). Furthermore I'll show a small demo that showcases a PX4 FMU connected to our UCANS32K146 which is a PX4-firmware enabled node that leverage from all existing PX4 infrastructure. Furthermore this demo is already available on upstream PX4 under https://github.com/PX4/PX4-Autopilot/tree/master/src/drivers/uavcan_v1 and https://github.com/PX4/PX4-Autopilot/tree/master/src/drivers/uavcan_v1/Subscribers/uORB
