Primary event sponsor, Hex Technology, along with ProfiCNC Pty Ltd, are looking forward to announcing additions to the Cube Autopilot product line, as well as some amazing new products.

At last year’s Conference in Xiamen, many had their first opportunity to meet up with some of the key Ardupilot developers and Hex/ProfiCNC’s hardware team, from this, quite a few new Ardupilot partnerships were formed, and we look forward to helping more people learn how to utilise Ardupilot in their applications.

A feature this year is the new Suzhou Testing centre, this is a 12sq KM government approved testing area, that not only includes an amazing area for testing multicopters and fixed-wing aircraft, but includes massive areas of tracks, canals, and ponds for testing rovers, boats, and submarines.  This facility will be in important part of making Ardupilot on the Cube more robust into the future, making your platforms more reliable.

For those looking to come to the conference, a 3-Day Conference Pass is available for $750 USD per person and includes

  • Admission to all keynotes on Oct 15 & Oct 16
  • Admission to special events on Oct 17
  • Meals and local transportation from Oct 15 to Oct 17
