Palo Alto, Calif.-headquartered FlytBase Inc. has introduced a new automated landing solution for drones.
According to the company, FlytDock enables a drone to precisely align and land itself on a site with centimeter-level accuracy. In works during the day or night, inside or outside, on a ground-level or elevated platform, or on a moving platform.
Powered by FlytOS, the solution uses computer vision techniques and dedicated landing algorithms to precisely align, approach and land a multi-rotor drone on a visual
marker on the ground. There is no infrastructure/electronics required on the landing site,
making it easy to deploy at scale, the company notes. Further, the system can be remotely managed and controlled over the cloud (through 4G/LTE).
“At FlytBase, we are building the core software platform for automating and scaling enterprise drone applications,” says Nitin Gupta, CEO of FlytBase. “Precision landing is an essential component for the success of several such autonomous deployments. With FlytDock, we have been able to assist our customers looking for a robust and reliable solution for precision landing on docking/charging stations for security, delivery and inspection applications.”
FlytDock is compatible with DJI Enterprise, Ardupilot and PX4-based drones.
