RavenOps was initially using the Crazyflie2 platform for demo projects. The Crazyflie platform natively supports 1:1 communications between a drone and a base station, and RavenOps needed to enable drones to broadcast information to other drones in the vicinity, as well as for a base station to broadcast commands to the entire drone fleet.
Our support included:
- Modifying the ESB layer to support sending and receiving broadcast commands
- Adopting CrazySwarm code for a host controller
- Writing a logging library to buffer log messages to dump at a later time for debugging
- Investigate solutions for BLE/ESB coexistence problems
The broadcasting software was used in early RavenOps investor demos.
