The Dronecode Foundation fosters communities and innovation through open-standards using open-source. Dronecode is a vendor-neutral foundation for open source drone projects. We are a US-based non-profit under the Linux Foundation and provide open source governance, infrastructure, and services to software & hardware projects. We work with developers, end-users, and adopting vendors from around the world.
We are setting the standards in the drone industry with open-source.
