Why Drones need Snappy Apps?

This article was last updated 4 years ago.


Erle-Robotics just showed the world how Snappy Ubuntu Core can power the autopilot in their Erle-Copter drone and push drones to their limits. It is a really cool video but the message is a lot bigger. If you are a drone manufacturer or just a drone hobbyist, you might be an expert in building the drone hardware. This does not mean that you are an expert in autopilot software. You can either do an average job yourself or you could buy the best autopilot Snappy App from the ROS Store. The second alternative sounds a lot smarter and is probably your cheapest option. The droneconomy is born, be sure you are part of it. Download Snappy Ubuntu Core today.
