DJI and Microsoft took to the keynotes stage at this week’s Airworks conference to launch the public preview of their Windows SDK.
The announcement was part of DJIs push to partner with industry leaders in order to enhance its ecosystem.
The SDK sets out to enable drone solutions developers to wirelessly transfer images to Windows-powered edge devices, integrate and control drones and allow third-party payloads via Windows apps to bring real-time AI and machine learning capabilities to imagery from DJI drones.
DJI hopes the move will ‘exponentially’ increase the way drones can be used and scaled up within an enterprise setting.
Microsoft made the announcement by explaining how the tech giant is continuing to develop ways to integrate its Azure IoT, edge computing, AI cloud services and developer tools with DJI drones to enable a broad range of high-value commercial IoT scenarios.
DJI thinks this partnership, alongside others with the likes of Union Pacific and Southern Company, will show a proactive approach in representing how the DJI network can provide tools to build and grow a platform for custom drone operations.
