Award-winning drone technology with Ubuntu

The market for drones is exploding as businesses and individuals embrace them. The global market for commercial applications of drone technology will balloon to as much as $127 billion by 2020 up from £2billion today (PWC.) Aerotenna is one of those innovators making this vision a reality.

Aerotenna’s award-winning technology seeks to solve the UAV autonomous flight-challenges – preventing UAVs from colliding with non-cooperative objects or other UAVs. Check out this video that shows it in action:

Autonomous Collision Avoidance- Mission from Aerotenna on Vimeo.

To learn more about Aerotenna’s award-winning technology download the case-study below. Highlights include:

  • Partnering with Intel® and Xilinx®, Aerotenna developed and released OcPoC with Altera Cyclone and Xilinx Zynq, with an industry-leading 100+ I/Os for sensor integration, and FPGA for sensor fusion, real-time data processing and deep learning
  • One such sensor is Aerotenna’s microwave radar that allows the drone to detect surrounding objects in all light conditions and environments, important for safe flying of UAVs
  • Ubuntu powers the OcPoC giving developers a familiar, extensible platform to build drone solutions based on the powerful combination of multiple sensors and complex robotics algorithms
