UAVCAN stack for low cost hardware announcement

Greetings everyone,

The first release of Libcanard v0.1 was published yesterday. Grab your copy on Github.

Libcanard is a dependency free, very compact implementation of the UAVCAN stack in C99. It is designed for low cost, deeply embedded applications with limited computing resources and small…

UAVCAN (CAN bus for UAV) preliminary release

UAVCAN is a lightweight protocol designed for highly reliable communication in UAV and robotic applications via CAN bus.

Its key features are the following:

  • Very low data overhead - which makes it suitable for high frequency distributed control loops.
  • Democratic network - no single point of failure.
  • Supports network-wide…

UAVCAN - CAN bus for UAV

Good day everyone,

A modern drone or flying robot tends to have quite a number of different hardware units onboard - Autopilot, Gimbal, GPS, ESC, OSD, PDB, RC just to name a few. As there is no common method to interconnect that variety of devices, and for sure each hardware unit tends to implement its very own…

CAN bus conventions for small UAV

Hi everyone!

As the developer of the open source CANaerospace library that (I hope) is gaining attention (as well as CAN does), I'd like to propose this RFC that defines the community standard for CAN interoperability:…

Open source CANaerospace library for UAV

Good day everyone.

There is open-source library implementing the CANaerospace protocol, targeted for microcontrollers and Linux. It is compact and easy to use in embedded systems with few amount of memory and limited processing power (such as most drone autopilots).

It is released under MIT license, so there is no problem if…
