To provide secure, onboard Wi-Fi technology for its new ZANO nano drones, U.K.-based Torquing Group has chosen Lantronix Inc., a global provider of smart Internet of Things solutions.

The ZANO drone is an aerial photography and HD video capture nano platform. The hand-sized aircraft uses the Lantronix xPico Wi-Fi module to provide connectivity to both iOS and Android devices – which enables users to communicate with and control the ZANO.

Using a smartphone or tablet, operators can either direct ZANO or set the intelligent nano drone to automatically follow the user and capture photos from a fixed distance. A multitude of sensors allows ZANO to avoid obstacles, hold its position and know exactly where it is in conjunction with a smart handheld device at all times.

Torquing Group plans to begin general production of the ZANO drone in the second quarter of 2015. The product will be showcased at the 2015 International CES from Jan. 6-9 in Las Vegas.

Torquing Group recently integrated the aircraft with OriginGPS' Nano Hornet, a small GPS module with an integrated antenna.
