PX4 Flight Stack ROS 3D Software in the Loop Simulation (SITL)

This is a preview of the upcoming high fidelity simulation capabilities and native ROS / Linux port of the PX4 flight stack. It includes simulated cameras, inertial sensors, flight physics and even sensors like laser rangefinders. The same software running during software in the loop simulation can also be executed on a Linux computer for live flight, and leverages the ROS middleware, logging, replay, data streaming and 3D visualization infrastructure.

Really great development guys,

ROS provides an excellent alternative approach.

And this integrated simulation / real time system seems to provide a really great environment for integrating new hardware and firmware capabilities.

Best Regards,
