A simulator for development is a must have for any company willing to sell drones.
Nicolas Carrier will present a practical implementation, currently in use at Parrot.
Based on gazebo and leveraging modern techniques such as overlayfs or containers, the Sphinx simulator project allows to simulate the most recent Parrot drones, powered by Linux, with accurate models for their actuators, sensors and aerodynamic behavior.
Based on it, most of the code lying in the firmwares can be automatically tested during continuous integration, dramatically reducing the expenses in field tests.
First he will present how the firmware code is executed, then how it interacts with the gazebo simulator. Following that, he will briefly present how sensors and actuators have been modeled. He will then conclude on the ongoing work and the potential future developments.
