Currawong expands protocol range to include DroneCAN – sUAS News – The Business of Drones
With over a decade of high reliability in UAV CANBUS communication, supporting a number of commercial and defence applications, Currawong is further setting the bar on meeting the ever-increasing demands of the electronics UAV industry.
Currawong products already offer real-time telemetry and health monitoring over the
existing CAN interface and they are expanding their offering to include DroneCAN (formerly UAVCAN 0.9) which will possess all the same benefits.
For customers, this will mean compatibility with PX4 autopilot systems, extended compatibility with Ardupilot and additional security with an encrypted bootloader and in-vehicle firmware updates. Keeping your device and information secure.
With the inclusion of DroneCAN into the protocol range, Currawong will be able to bring the market-leading, high power density Velocity ESC range to a wider range of consumers.
Support for DroneCAN increases interoperability with other DroneCAN devices without
compromising on control or the existing rich set of features that Currawong products are known for.
Currawong is very excited and proud to be able to support DroneCAN in their product range, with the Velocity ESC range already talking DroneCAN and further rollout to the rest of the product range will occur in the coming months.
