Software Development Leader
Arator is a fully automatic drone used by the agricultural sector. Sales leader in the XMobots - with more than 100 units sold - the drone have 50 mins endurance and HA technology, a proprietary technology from XMobots that allows 2 cm of accuracy in the creation of orthophotos and digital models.
Is a high-technology portable drone, market leader and the most advanced small-sized drone developed in Brazil.
- Lean system: the Arator has 3 parts: the drone itself, a small communication antenna with 10Km range and a Ground Control Station.
- Autopilot developed by XMobots, using a 1GHz ARM SoC, with RTOS QNX;
- Ground Control Station software fully developed by XMobots for flight planning and realtime control of the drone.
WHAT I DID
In this project, I acted as a software development leader, with emphasis on the Ground Control Station software. I created software for Arator monitoring and operating.
This software was developed in Java (Swing), C and C++. I used a lot of MDD with IBM Rational Rhapsody (UML) and Esterel SCADE. The software that I programmed fulfill realtime and multiplatform requirements and run on embedded Linux on ARM platforms.
