Automate your Drone with VOXL+MAVSDK

Are you building the next great drone application? Our VOXL platform is open to enable OEMs and developers to build incredible new applications with drones and robots. MAVSDK is a popular tool in the PX4 flight controller ecosystem to program your drone to a broad range of tasks.
