AmovLab joins Dronecode Foundation to join effort in open standards adoption

By February 25, 2021Announcements

By joining Dronecode Foundation, AmovLab hopes to expand its market to the global developer community and share its experience developing hardware projects and products.

“We want to design more integrated modules with the PX4 Autopilot”. 

AmovLab also hopes to participate in the Pixhawk Special Interest Group discussions, establish industry-level open-source flight control standards, increase adoption by evangelizing the open standards, and contribute back to the open-source community. 

AmovLab is a company based in Chengdu, China, dedicated to advancing AI education courses and developing R&D equipment. It was established in 2016 and launched its open-source autonomous drone project “Prometheus,” a ROS-based UAV development platform in 2019. The company produced the P-series UAV, specifically designed for scientific research and experimentation. Many well-known universities and research institutes in China adopted the P-series.

AmovLab also operates as an educational training provider that holds various online and offline training courses for robotics developers.

The Amov Community is a rapidly growing and active technology exchange forum in China with more than 30,000 alumni from institutional training and 4,000 registered BBS users.

AmovLab also develops UGVs and USVs based on the PX4 Autopilot and modular components designed for robot development.

The team also develops solutions for drone formation control, autonomous identification, and tracking of drones through their self-designed modems and PTZ cameras.

“AmovLab, since its inception, has been a fierce supporter of open source and has shared technological achievements on various platforms. We hope to make R&D easier for drone and robot developers through our hardware platforms and courses. By collaborating the open source way, researchers benefit from our technology sharing and then contributing their innovations. Our vision is to become an organization that advances AI education and a company that produces high-quality R&D robotic hardware.” 

Xiao Qi, Founder of AmovLab.
