The LibrePilot open source project was founded in July 2015. It focuses on research and development of software and hardware to be used in a variety of applications including vehicle control and stabilization, unmanned autonomous vehicles and robotics. One of the project’s primary goals is to provide an open and collaborative environment making it the ideal home for development of innovative ideas.
LibrePilot welcomes and encourages exchange and collaboration with other projects, like adding support for existing hardware or software in collaboration under the spirit of open source.
LibrePilot finds its roots in the OpenPilot project and the founding members are all long-standing contributors in that project.
The LibrePilot Project will be governed by a board of members using consensual methods to make important decisions and to set the overall direction of the project.
