ELC 2015 – Heterogeneous Multi-Core Architecture Support for Dronecode – Mark Charlebois, Qualcomm

By November 14, 2015Videos

Qualcomm Technologies Inc (QTI) has ported code from the DroneCode project to support UAVs based on a heterogeneous multi-core SoC. This talk gives a brief introduction to the SW projects hosted at the DroneCode Project, a high level overview of the architecture of the PX4 code, and the modifications made by QTI to support running the inner loop code on the Hexagon DSP, allowing the multicore ARM compatible Krait processors to run the outer loop code and other CPU intensive functions such as image processing. The talk also highlights some of the future additions QTI would like help make as an active member of the Dronecode Project.
