Submission + - What's Next, Google Self Driving Drones? (linuxgizmos.com)

DeviceGuru writes: In light of the FAA's recent approval of two unmanned drones for commercial operation in U.S. airspace (Slashdot), it's interesting to see the bits and pieces for building commercial UAVs falling into place.

The devices include multi-rotor capabilities, and support various radios, GPS and inertial systems, servo interfaces, and onboard interfaces such as USB and CAN. The autopilot controllers run a configurable, royalty-free AirwareOS embedded Linux OS, making them amenable to considerable customization. Adding to that the fact that Airware recently received $10.7 million in funding from Google Ventures and several other investors raises the question: What's next, Google self-driving drones?
