If you are interested and looking for drone events in 2022 which are related to the open-source side of the drone industry then this event will be a great event at. So, we have just two weeks out from the PX4 Developer Summit 2022. While this event does center around the PX4 Ecosystem so many sessions related to the drone industry only focus on the open-source drone technologies except learning from maintainers, contributors,, and also stakeholders.
The 2022 edition of the annual flagship conference hosted by the Dronecode for the very first time held in the U.S. this event will also take place at the JW Marriott Austin in Austin, Texas on June 23 and 24.
us talk about the past two years of the conference being completely virtual. That was held back in 2019 at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and drew about two hundred developers from twenty countries. You can buy a virtual pass for watching videos and keynotes. The virtual conference has many benefits like mega cost-saving, quick display, and more time-saving. When we compare virtual and non-virtual conferences then we find that individual conference passes cost $450 and virtual passes cost is just $50.

Introduction Of PX4, PIXHAWK, AND OPEN SOURCE
PX4 is good for unmanned vehicles and it is an open-source flight control software primarily for drones. Further PIXHAWK is an advanced autopilot, designed and made in collaboration between the PX4 team and the Holy bro. What about an open-source? It an open-source drone run via a free-use license that’s publicly and openly worked on by developers that can be improved theoretically. That is just the opposite of a closed-source product built by one individual company. That company considers its software and technology to be proprietary. In the drone world, Open source projects are flight control software, battery management software,, and communication protocols.
Nowadays, most open-source drone projects are facilitated through the Drone code Foundation. There is a complete team behind this conference and a U.S-based vendor-neutral non-profit foundation for open-source drone projects and runs under the Linux Foundation and received support from great players just like Microsoft.
One of the conference speakers and General Manager of the Drone code, named Ramon Roche said that This open ecosystem is very thriving and the adopters are reaping the benefits of open collaboration by embracing standards so they can easily use to interface with each other. There is Auterion, the largest open-source drone software platform in the world.
In short, open source IA way more than software and providing so many benefits to multiple companies of open collaboration by embracing standards to interface with each other.
