Skydio R1 Takes Autonomous Drone Flight To The Next Level

Most modern unmanned aerial vehicles have turned into flying autonomous cameras, allowing you to record any object with minimal pilot work. Skydio R1, however, slides in the autonomous department, using the capabilities of the piloting itself, which gives shame to the most intelligent drones DJI.

Skydio R1 Takes Autonomous Drone Flight To The Next Level

Do you know how an autonomous drone can detect an obstacle and automatically adjust the flight path so that it is at a safe distance from it? Well, not this. Instead, he boldly flies through all the obstacles that he encounters, evading trees, poles and power lines in his path, and not flying at a safe distance. Simply put, it looks like an experienced pilot flies on a spin.
The technology of autonomous flight Skydio R1 is advanced enough that it can evade obstacles based on the camera in real time, so there is no need for hum to use GPS to create a map before heading to a full autonomous flight. Twelve navigation cameras (including those that look up and down) spaced around the drone provide frames used by the autonomous flight system, with all records processed using the Nvidia Jetson TX1 graphics processor on board. The 13th camera records the object, providing 4K frames that are stored in 64GB of built-in storage.
Like many modern unmanned aerial vehicles, the device can monitor a specific object and automatically keep them in the frame. Unlike them, it is able to keep the object focused even in crowded air environments, as it can avoid collisions, quickly changing directions, and not completely correcting the flight path. This means that you can use automatic tracking even in a forest surrounded by many trees, rather than being limited to activation only when you are in open spaces. Catch (of course, there is a catch)? The drone can not fly above the water, as it can not see the ever-changing features of the water surfaces.

Skydio R1 Takes Autonomous Drone Flight To The Next Level

To fly to Skydio R1, start with the launch of the mobile application and slide your finger on one finger, which will cause the launch of the drone. From there, simply select one of the available cinematography modes (Follow, Orbit or Side), and you shoot. After that, everything will be in order, as the hum can handle every part of the filming process, so you can fully concentrate on any activity in which you are participating. After you're done, just count the drow home, after which you can access all the footage you shot from the companion application. There is even an editing interface that allows you to make short clips and instantly share them on your accounts on social networks.
The design is aluminum and carbon for an unmanned aerial vehicle that must provide its light weight for maximum maneuverability, while the thin profile that propellers place along the same line as the body of an unmanned aerial vehicle provides its reasonable aerodynamics, allowing easy transport it in a bag. According to the equipment, he can fly at a maximum speed of more than 20 mph, which should be fast enough to keep up with most items in motion. It comes with replaceable batteries that can support an unmanned engine for 16 minutes in a row.
Skydio R1 costs 2500 dollars.
