October 14, 2020 Join NASA and Help Us Build Their QGroundControl System!
Want to help NASA build some cool stuff? Live your life long dream of working with NASA by developing their new Ground Control Station (GCS) at Topcoder.
NASA needs a Ground Control Station (GCS) software for small unmanned
aircraft systems (sUAS; i.e., drones) that can be safely used for live flight
operations while also providing functionality necessary for researching advanced human-automation teaming concepts. This software will be built upon the existing open-source GCS software (QGroundControl).
Right now we have three Topcoder Skill Builder Competitions for QGroundControl. These competitions are designed for everyone to skill up, have fun, and get ready for exciting work coming.
We are beginning a long term series of challenges to create a new version of a ground control system based on QGroundControl. The ground control system will allow the UASs to be safely used for live flight operations while also providing the functionality necessary for researching advanced algorithms and human-automation teaming concepts.
Don’t miss your chance to join in now to get ramped up for this challenge series and add NASA to your list of amazing customers to have worked for.
