Drone development has made huge advances recently, but once the drones get off the ground, users need to be able to fly, control and track them. Drone maker 3D Robotics has announced it has open-sourced its Tower flight control app for drones. The application not only provides users with a feature-rich flight experience, but the open programming interface also allows developers to create or customize features.
“3D Robotics is a big believer in imaginative uses of drones for business and pleasure, as well as in ways that benefit society,” said Colin Guinn, chief revenue officer of 3D Robotics. “By opening up our Tower programming interface to the public, we’re giving enthusiasts and entrepreneurs the ability to impact those uses in a very positive manner. We’re excited to see how people use their talents to improve and innovate on Tower.”
