Software Development Leader
Nauru was the first Brazillian drone with flight authorization by ANAC. With 3,5m of wing-span, Nauru has an endurance of 10 hours.
NAURU is a medium-sized high-technology drone. It was the first Brazillian drone with flight authorization by ANAC (Brazillian FAA).
- Nauru has 4 parts: the drone itself, a small communication antenna with 10Km range, a Ground Control Station and a catapult for its launch.
- 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;
- Real-time full-HD navigation video transmission between the drone and the GCS.
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.
