A decade of rich history and
a fast growing community
A decade ago, “Pixhawk” was a student project at ETH Zurich. Little did the team know that it would end up having such a large influence on the drone industry. During this time, the team created MAVLink, Pixhawk, PX4, and QGroundcontrol — which are today’s most used standards for flight control hardware and autopilot software in the drone industry. This was the beginning of a story of a very successful open source project outperforming individual corporate development.
Created by industry leaders
Pixhawk is the defacto standard for those who build the ubiquitous autonomous systems that will support a better world for humanity.
NXP is pleased to participate in the development of an open standard by working with the community. Together, we ensure quality, safety, and efficiency of modern autonomous systems products.
At Freefly we greatly value simple and effective open standards and protocols, and we are excited to help create these for the industry!
The Pixhawk Smart Battery Standard will increase the safety, interoperability, and professionalism of the open source UAV ecosystem.
