Drone Delivery with Python

I’ve recently discovered Tiziano Fiorenzani on YouTube. He is creating video tutorials for How Drones Work, DroneKit and ArduPilot. His latest, Drone Delivery with Python, is linked above, with the playlist here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLuteWQUGtU9BcXXr3jCG00uVXFwQJkLRa
I think it’s great that Tiziano is doing this, and hope it will help new users explore DroneKit.

The code accompanying the tutorials is located here:

WeRobotics - Fleet of Cargo Drones Tested in Amazon Rainforest

WeRobotics (https://werobotics.org/) is an organisation worth following: they've been involved not only in some ground-breaking implementations of UAS technology in challenging environments, but have also worked with global leaders to shape the framework for the humanitarian use of UAS. Really important, worthwhile stuff.

Their latest challenge - evaluating "cheap" drones for cargo delivery in the Amazon - involved a mixed fleet of aircraft running ArduPilot. Thanks for choosing and trusting us!

"The field tests were a first for Latin America, using a dozen cargo drones
(different models) and a range of payloads (medicines, diagnostic tests, blood
samples) and distances (2km to 120km). The tests were also unique because they were
carried out ... Read more

Configuring Ardupilot for UAVCAN


I thought I would add to the UAVCAN article I just posted a note on configuring UAVCAN in Ardupilot. I have built a UAVCAN quad and it is so cool because there are only three connections to the flight controller. Power, CANbus and RCin are all that is required! The UC4H ... Read more
