Moscow based Copter Express today joins Dronecode to collaborate with the open-source community. The company behind the Clover Drone Kit joins as a Silver member. By becoming a member of the Dronecode community, they hope to help create a top of the line software stack.
“Doing aerial robotics education for five years, we are focusing on creating an international environment for the growth of young talents. I think the Dronecode community is the best place for young enthusiasts to find like-minded partners to create the future of drones”– Oleg Ponfilenok, CEO at COEX.
COEX is currently selling its educational platform through Indiegogo. Clover is a programmable educational quadcopter kit that consists of accessible open source components, and the necessary documentation and libraries for controlling it.
The kit includes a Pixracer flight controller with the PX4 flight stack, a Raspberry Pi 4 as a controlling onboard computer, and a camera module for performing flights with the use of computer vision, as well as a set of various sensors and other peripherals.
COEX is no stranger to the community, just this past June, their leadership team gave a great talk on the PX4 Developer Summit titled “PX4 in STEM education: How e taught a thousand students how to program drones”. One of the best-received presentations of the show.
They have also just hosted the biggest PX4 hackathon of the year “COPTERHACK’19” on October 11-13, they were able to bring together more 480 participants from 51 teams.
We thank Copter Express for their trust, and support of open-source technologies.
