FL-AIR (Framework Libre Air) has been developed in the service plateformes of Heudiasyc laboratory ; its main goal is to ease of integration and testing of our research algorithms. This framework is based on Linux and is compatible with Xenomai (real time feature) ; it abstracts all communication and real time layers. As a research tool, building a ground station to monitor all UAV’s states is automatic.

Moreover, a simulator based on FL-AIR was also developed to test without any danger UAV programs on a computer before real flights. Thus, all bugs and errors can be detected and resolved. A 3D environment (see figure below) allows to simulate all embedded sensors (cameras, LIDARS, …)
