With our office located just minutes away from Zurich we are working on state of the art technology for the drones of tomorrow. Our work focuses on providing commercial software and applications for Yuneec products. Most notably we realised the adaptation of the PX4 open-source flight controller for Yuneec products, starting with the Yuneec H520. To the best of our knowledge, the Yuneec H520 was the first commercial drone world-wide that runs PX4 software.
Regarding open-source, we are proud to say that Yuneec is a key contributor of PX4, the open-source software ecosystem for drones. Our collaboration with the community surrounding PX4 means that we help build the most advanced and open flight system for drones all over the world. At the same time it enables us to keep our own flight controller, the heart and brain of every drone, up-to-date with the most recent advances and features of PX4.
Yuneec values all of the creative minds out there building new tools for use with our drones. We want to support & enable this kind of innovation. However, only certified Yuneec accessories can be flown with Yuneec products without violating the Yuneec warranty, which is of course vital. The Yuneec certified accessory program is designed to make it simple and straightforward to create an officially sanctioned accessory for Yuneec drones. It also paves the way to future partnerships between you and us. Once the certification process is complete, you will be able to claim that your product is "Certified Yuneec compatible". We will even provide you with a logo to apply to your product to advertise the successful certification. In addition we will also advertise your product in our online catalog.
The fees for this certification consist of the NRE costs for the certification tests, any NRE work required for integration assistance, and 5% of the wholesale revenue of certified product. The 5% fee is required to offset the additional customer service overhead generated by the program. Yuneec maintains warranty and customer support for the drone, while you are responsible for the warranty and customer support of your product. Updated payloads can generally be certified at a fraction of the original price as we can re-use much of our previous work.
If you have a product which you are interested in certifying, please contact us at email@example.com.
The mission of the ATL of Yuneec Research is to advance technology for Yuneec, our strategic partners, and society at large. The list of technical challenges - hardware and software - we hope to tackle is exciting: Beyond line-of-sight operation suitable for emergency services, application of computer vision, machine learning and data science to assist in search and rescue, agriculture and industrial inspection, flight dynamics, obstacle avoidance and collision detection. Equally important is improving the sociotechnological aspects of our international collaborations. This means applying and innovating processes and technologies which help us form meaningful and effective collaborations.
Your mission is aid wherever you best can, according the company's needs and your abilities. We're looking for people who proactively and creativly find areas where they can help: to improve ourselves, to improve Yuneec's products, to improve our partners lives and livelyhood, and hopefully to improve the world in some way. We are a small lab in a competitive and dynamic field. At times you will be asked to act as a sys-admin, a software engineer, a customer support engineer, a project manager, a leader, a follower, and maybe even a salesperson. At all times you will be asked to be a team player and colleage. In return, we promise freedom, trust, flexibility, and limitless possibilities to grow. We believe that the path to success requires careful coordination and teamwork, and an organization where every voice gets heard. We believe that the growth, development and sense of fulfillment of our teammates is key to our success.
