Explore how the flexibility of the UAVCAN v1 protocol allows developers to utilize UAVCAN in new domains and applications. The AmadorUAVs team presents a novel approach to designing a UAVCAN/UDP backed DDS and prototype ground control system. The prototype GCS, named Pilot, enables a rich and extensible ecosystem of plugins and scriptability that supports a wide range of use cases, from beginners and end users to researchers. This presentation explains initial findings while experimenting with the UAVCAN v1 protocol as a lightweight DDS system, demonstrates some of its capabilities, and weighs the benefits/shortcomings of such an approach.
