This repository holds the PX4 flight control solution for drones, with the main applications located in the src/modules directory. It also contains the PX4 Drone Middleware Platform, which provides drivers and middleware to run drones.
PX4 is highly portable, OS-independent and supports Linux, NuttX and MacOS out of the box.
This Developer Guide is for software developers who want to modify the flight stack and middleware (e.g. to add new flight modes), hardware integrators who want to support new flight controller boards and peripherals, and anyone who wants to get PX4 working on a new (unsupported) airframe/vehicle.
The PX4 Dev Team syncs up on a weekly dev call.
Note The dev call is open to all interested developers (not just the core dev team). This is a great opportunity to meet the team and contribute to the ongoing development of the platform. It includes a QA session for newcomers. All regular calls are listed in the Dronecode calendar.
This repository contains code supporting Pixhawk standard boards (best supported, best tested, recommended choice) and proprietary boards.
Additional information about supported hardware can be found in PX4 user Guide > Autopilot Hardware.
A high level project roadmap is available here.
The PX4 Autopilot project including all of its trademarks is hosted under Dronecode, part of the Linux Foundation.
