Gloabl technology company Intel is expanding its unmanned aerial vehicles offering in a bid to see the industry grow.
Intel’s CEO Brian Krzanich headlined this year’s InterDrone show with a Keynote presentation where he unveiled the company’s next UAV systems.
Continuing its momentum in the commercial drone market, Intel has announced a new solution that will extend the value Intel adds, well after flights are completed.
The first announced product was a new drone data analytics solution developed in partnership with DELAIR called Intel Insight Platform. This platform can generate 2D and 3D models, take measurements, and make annotations for sharing across teams, as well as running advanced data analytics, such as change detection and plant counting.
Krzanich also explained how new technologies help enhance automated drones, like obstacle avoidance and pilot assistance function powered by Intel RealSense technology, flight planning automation with Intel Mission Control software, and automatic change detection with Intel Insight Platform.
Krzanich explained that Intel Mission Control software allows a drone to fly a fully-automated mission, assisted by Intel indoor location technology for positioning, with a single press of a button. The captured data was then transferred to Intel Insight Platform where Krzanich showcased the software’s change detection feature after generating a 2D model.
