DroneOS - Realtime UAV tracking via the web

We're a small startup working on a project for tracking and sharing the location of UAVs and drones in real time via the web. Flights are tracked by attaching a smartphone to a drone and distributing a URL which lets your friends follow your flights in realtime on a map in a web browser.

We've been focused on building and solidifying a backend system and API to support our iPhone application. (an Android app is in the works) We're interested in feedback from the community on what we got right / wrong and where we should take the project.

Take a look at http://droneos.com and sign up for the beta if you are interested in trying it out. We are at SXSW this week if you are interested in meeting up or DM us at @droneos via Twitter.

Agreed on the reasons behind a RESTful interface. We are a good ways down the road with this in fact so we should be able to get you testing this very soon. I'll shoot you our docs off-thread and we can go from there.

Hi, Anders.  Are you still working on this?

Comment by Anders Brownworth on December 20, 2012 at 5:34pm

It has been on the back burner lately - code is there and working but another project has been taking all of our time. While a number of people have shown interest, few actually test. If people can test, we'll put some more time into it.

Thanks for the nudge, John.
