Test Like You Fly: How libuavcan is Implementing On-Target Testing
In this talk we will demonstrate how the libuavcan project, a C++ implementation of the UAVCAN protocol, is using Raspberry PIs and Buildkite.com to run unit tests on Cortex-M targets as part of its automated build pipeline. We’ll discuss why we’re investing in this capability, how the project’s methodology is well suited for geographically distributed teams developing firmware, and will invite others in the PX4 community to comment and contribute ideas on how to evolve and improve what we’ve built.

This is a presentation of a blog post I have on my personal site here -> https://32bits.io/blog/2019/5/26/libuavcan-hil-test-automation-using-buildkite-and-raspberry-pi

Energy-efficient electric propulsion in modern UAV systems
Zubax Robotics has developed an integrated motor control circuit that enables third-party hardware engineers to design sophisticated electric drives using its cutting-edge field-oriented control technology. With this solution, a regular hardware engineer without prior experience with motor control applications can design a custom electric drive in a few days. The motor control technology utilizes new patent-pending approaches to digital signal processing that facilitate reduced heat rejection, thereby increasing the energy-efficiency of the drive and enabling higher endurance. Extensive empirical testing indicates that innovative electric drives built on the Zubax motor control technology outperform similar solutions based on TI InstaSPIN (which is widely used by numerous well-known vendors such as DJI and T-Motor).
