Typhoon H drone taps Intel’s 3D-mapping tech for collision-free flight

Typhoon H drone taps Intel's 3D-mapping tech for collision-free flight  #WearableTech #IoT

  • With folding landing gear and a swivelling 4K camera, the drone was impressive enough, but what really created a buzz was the demonstration of an advanced model with the impressive ability to steer clear of obstacles.
  • Yuneec claims that the Intel RealSense Technology onboard the Typhoon H Pro is a big improvement on some earlier obstacle avoidance solutions that use sonic sensors (part of the Phantom’s approach) to gauge the distance to an object.
  • Drones have quickly become a valuable tool for film-makers and photographers looking to gain fresh perspectives on their subjects, but mastering the joysticks and avoiding meetings between the expensive gear and telephone poles isn’t as easy as it might appear.
  • Yuneec has priced the Typhoon H Pro at US$1,899 and says shipments will kick off in about four weeks.
  • This allows the drone to recognize each obstacle and choose an alternative route on the fly.
