Hi, my proposal was completed in time but we had an major internet outage. Due to COVID-19 lock-down, the teams that were supposed to fix the issue could not come and repair in time. I would insist that in times of crisis I should be given chance to submit my proposal. Thanks.
@jawad111 you will need to ask google. We don't have any control over the submission process. That is all handled by the GSoC team in google
Thank you for your response
@jawad111 i had exact same problem

@cohen39 Thank you!
Hi. Is there any sample algorithm or block diagram for Ardupilot Attitude Estimator? If there is, Can you share me? I couldn't found yet. Thanks.
The main attitude estimator is an EKF; some papers are mentioned here:
I wanted to prepare for GSoc 2021, but here the idea are suggested for this year, and I guess these idea probably be done in this year. My question is to where to look at if right now I don't have any idea?
Hello, 2021 is really far away
You should start by try the simulator and then on github search for the good first issue on the issues list. That way you have an idea of what we are doing and what can be wrong
We are now in the Organization Project Selection phase at Google. We received a lot of good proposals and we are reviewing them carefully. Sadly we won't be able to accept them all but we really appreciate the applications in any case.
@patrickpoirier51 thank you for the update......can you tell us how many students will be selected for this summer? Or in Google terms, the number of "slots" ardupilot has recieved? Regards
Well, I have to be cautious here.... Let's say that if someone was looking at our organisation past history with GSoC he could probably extrapolate the numbers ;-)
Also can you please tell us the procedure ardupilot follows for selection? Do the relevant mentors sort the applications? Is the application read by multiple mentors, or just one? Is there unified grading scheme.... much thanks for the reply.
@KareemKher_twitter You can refer to this blog under ArduPilot Selection Process. Hope it helps and best of luck!
yep, what is in the blog post is a good summary on what the selection process is !
Good morning every one! just a few hours away before the student selections are revealed. Good Luck to everyone!
A few minutes left for the results
Best of luck to everyone
Congratulations to the 5 students who were successful this year! We had a very good set of applications this year and the selection process was quite difficult. We only have a limited number of mentors available which unfortunately limits how many students we could accept
If any of the sucessful students would like to share their proposals publicly that may help students to put together good applications for next year. Just remove any personal information first if you don't want to share that. It is not at all required to share it, but I think quite a few of the other students would be interested in seeing just how good the applications were.
Thanks again for all the proposals. As Tridge says we had quite a few top quality proposals and it was a really hard choice.
I am really excited that all the projects we have selected have been accepted by Google. They cover a good spectrum of our development field and offer a good mix of new blood and continuity .
