I am new here. Been flying RC since before I can remember. I got a Ardupilot and am excited to start digging into the software.
Now that the intro is out of the way ;)
I will be graduating soon with a MS in Computer Science. I would love to get get into developing software for UAVs. Either for end users (pilots) or embedded flight control stuff and was hoping some of you could help point me in the right direction.
I know the big engineering schools like MIT, Stanford, CMU etc. all have ongoing research on UAVs. I also know big companies like Northrup Grumman and Boeing have UAV projects. But I probably am not going to get into a program like MIT or Stanford and don't really want to work for a company as big as Boeing.
So I am hoping some of you great folks might know of some smaller companies that work on UAVs or less competitive universities that are actively involved in UAV development. I would be happy to work in industry or go the research route. I will be applying to AeroVironment and maybe Insitu but thats all I have on my list at the moment.
Any help would be appreciated. I am sure Ill be asking more relevant questions when I get my air frame here and start flying.
