Stable Software - Fast Development
weGCS is a flight planning and control software for the ground station of an unmanned aircraft respectively helicopter. We developed the compete visualization software for a UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) startup. On a laptop computer flight paths can easily be planned and entered using a mouse, all on any bitmap-based map. During the flight, the overall status of the helicopter is displayed, including visualization of its position on the map.
The software replaced fast and efficiently several predecessors, the function of which, especially wrt. flight planning and use of discretionary maps, but also their stability left somethings to be desired. So our customer was able to fulfill the needs of the final customers and users and first systems could be sold.
Expertise and Technologies
The project was programed in C++ using wxWidgets.The fast familiarization with cartography and geodesy was responsible to find a solution for the use of bitmap maps that was simple for the user.
Through the use of an iterative, agile development method, the customer was able to provide his customer a stable software very quickly. in addition we were able to efficiently feed back the user inputs to the software.
