Looking back at 2018

Another hectic year has passed. We can’t believe it’s been seven years since our first blog post. Only missing a few Monday blog posts over these past seven years makes this post #375! Kind of impressing from a bunch of nerds that rather write code instead of communicative and fun blog posts :-).

As being the last blog post of the year we can’t think of anything better then summarizing 2018.

Community

The community is one of the big motivators for us. We are very, very thankful for your support! You keep us going!

Software

  • On the Loco positioning side there has been a lot of focus on TDoA, aka swarm positioning. During the year we managed to release TDoA2 and TDoA3 as experimental. Read more about the algorithms in their respective blog post.
  • The Crazyswarm fork was merged into master, thanks again USC ACT Lab!
  • Together with Qualisys we continued the work to add support for their MoCap cameras to the Crazyflie system.
  • It might not be correctly classified as software but we released a new front page!
  • Firmware and Software release 2018.10 packs a lot of new stuff.

Hardware

Logistics

We can’t summarize 2018 without a note about the logistics problems we had which made us move the stock to our office in Malmö. Who figured it could be that hard! For those that had to wait a long time for their packages, we apologize. The good news is that it is much better now and logistics will work flawlessly in 2019!, hopefully… :-)
