The foundation welcomed six new members in 2023, including those who built their businesses from scratch on top of the PX4 open standards and others who see a valuable investment in the stability and growth of the community.
Through the tireless work of hundreds of contributing developers, the PX4 ecosystem continues to provide the critical infrastructure that ensures secure, safe, and efficient UAS operations globally. Organizations ranging from startups to large enterprises can all leverage hundreds of thousands of human work hours invested to date to grow their businesses on top of proven technologies
2023 saw the release of PX4 V1.14.0 and MAVSDK 2.0, marking important milestones in those projects’ development. The year also brought increased integration with the ROS ecosystem, opening up new opportunities for collaboration efforts with the greater field of general robotics. This was fully on display in October where the PX4 Developers Summit and ROSCon held co-located events, joining the communities in-person for the first time ever.
