Impressions from Previous Events

“I really enjoyed the way the material and presentation sessions presented the valuable information regarding the px4 platform. The conference sparked and rekindled my interest in aerial robotics especially me being a Roboticist particularly interested in Manipulation and Grasping problem, I never thought Aerial Robotics had such a strong community and this event proved me otherwise.” … Shahram Najam Syed

“Everything in one place, good presentation and speakers, friendly environment.“

“The summit was a great introduction to PX4 development and I am excited to work with PX4 more in the future! I learned a lot about not only different ways that PX4 can be used, but also the architecture / “how it works”. I appreciated that the event was pivoted to virtual as it allowed me to attend a conference that would have otherwise probably been outside of my reach.”… Parthiv Krishna
