DJI launched the updated version of its manifold onboard drone computer that enables the next generation of autonomous aerial robotics solutions and also The generation device can be programmed for myriad different enterprise purposes, from research to routine inspections.
DJI is the world’s leader in civilian drones and aerial imaging technology was founded and is run by people with a passion for remote-controlled helicopters and experts in flight-control technology and camera stabilization. The company is dedicated to making aerial photography and filmmaking equipment and platforms more accessible, reliable and easier to use for creators and innovators around the world.
With the extra figure capacity of Manifold 2, clients can process complex picture information installed the automation and get results promptly and can program automatons to fly self-ruling while recognizing objects and staying away from obstructions. Compatible with Matrices 210 Series, Matrices 600 Series and N3 and A3 Flight Controllers, Manifold 2 empowers that the next generation of enterprise drone solutions.
Jan Gasparic, DJI Director of Strategic Partnerships at DJI stated, “Manifold 2 expands the use cases of drone technology exponentially by allowing businesses, developers and researchers to build the most advanced autonomous aerial robotics solutions for nearly any industry or task.
“Through partnerships with some of the industry’s leading computing companies and chip manufacturers, we are enabling DJI drones to become intelligent flying robots that can perform complex computing tasks and advanced image processing literally on the fly,” added Jan Gasparic.
Ed Koch, Chief Technology Officer at Auto modality, a leading company developing autonomous drone solutions, said “By empowering the drone to perceive and analyze in real-time, Manifold 2 opens new areas and capabilities and allows Auto modality-equipped DJI Matrices 210s to autonomously fly where no one else has flown before, in GPS and radio frequency-denied environments where the most valuable and actionable data resides. DJI Manifold 2 not only enables the advanced computer vision, perception and navigation featured in Auto modality are patented AMROS™ and Perceptive Navigation platform suite, it also enables next-generation artificial intelligence out on the edge, a hallmark of Auto modality’s software and service offering for industrial inspections.
Manifold 2 provides powerful intelligence for a variety of applications with the ability to choose between an Intel® Core™ i7-8550U CPU or NVIDIA® Jetson™ TX2 supercomputer on a module for AI at the edge. Both versions are compatible with DJI’s leading enterprise drones including the Matrice 210 series and Matrice 600 series and can be integrated into the drone’s internal systems and sensors using DJI’s powerful software development kit, allowing for open customization and seamless integration into the DJI ecosystem of software and hardware solution providers
