Today we’re going to talk about the work that members of our IT team are currently implementing. More precisely, we handle the section that deals with firmware development, software written in C language that will be sent and executed by a microcontroller.

In particular they are dealing with the development of a system that allows interaction with sensors, devices that let the measurement of information necessary for the flight such as: altitude, temperature, position, inclination, speed etc.

Hence, to be able to do this, our guys are developing programs called Drivers, which allow the correct interface through the different communication protocols and data packaging of individual sensors.
