    Dr Andrew Tridgell is a long time linux user and developer who is obsessed with flying robots of all types. Best known for past contributions to Samba and rsync, Andrew spends his time these days working on the ArduPilot autopilot.


In this talk I will show the latest updates from the ArduPilot community where we take the obsession with flying robots very seriously. From tiny 100g micro-drones to monsters weighing over a tonne, ArduPilot continues to cover a huge range of aircraft types and uses. Key highlights will include the new AP_Periph system for creating UAVCAN peripherals, a new embedded Lua engine for customisation and a new quadplane landing system.
