Drone solutions platform Auterion has shown off its integration of the Sony A7R4 camera on a drone on day two of the Commercial UAV Expo Americas.
This marks the first time this camera has been integrated into a drone using common payload integration standards, the company revealed.
It does this with use of the PixHawk Payload Bus, and integrates the camera with its own software platform.
Camera parameters, live video stream, data on the SD card, and geotagging are all available to use with Auterion’s offering.
Neal Manowitz, deputy president of imaging products and solutions Americas at Sony Electronics, said: “We’re excited about Auterion’s utilization of our new SDK to integrate Sony’s Alpha cameras into their platform.
“This allows professionals to experience the leading image quality of products like the Alpha 7R IV, opening up a new world of commercial application possibilities.”
The company also says it has integrated other cameras such as the Workswell Wiris Pro, Workswell Wiris Security, Trillium HD40, and Nextvision models, offering customers a range of options.
Auterion describes itself as “the drone platform built for enterprise that powers any drone with the software, payloads and seamless workflow integrations required for large-scale drone operations.”
