The RealSense technology is capable of detecting obstacles and adapting to them intelligently by using three different cameras and sensors that refresh at 60fps to build a 3D model of the world. This module upgrades the standard version of the Yuneec Typhoon H to one capable of autonomous flight.
The infrared and RGB cameras and the infrared laser combine using machine vision technology developed by Intel with Yuneec to let the aircraft’s autopilot know exactly how far it is from surrounding object it has ‘seen’ and differentiate between objects of differing color to enhance distinguishing between them.
Typhoon H with RealSense carries an additional Intel® RealSense™ camera over the standard Intel implementation. There are three cameras that act like one—a 1080p HD camera, an infrared camera, and an infrared laser projector—they “see” like the human eye to sense depth and track motion. Typhoon H’s full 360 degree camera gimbal and retractable gear allows the module to always be facing obstacles in the path of flight, regardless of camera position.
The additional sensors don’t just provide enhanced collision avoidance but also enhance the H’s ability to sense altitude and allows for fully autonomous flight. Upgrade your drone and experience the worlds first mass produced autonomous drone!
