3D Software Minimizes Drone Crashing

Leti is set to demonstrate what it calls the world’s first low-power, low-cost 3D anti-crash, fusion-sensor solution for drones. Its 360Fusion software, in combination with miniaturized sensors, collects, analyzes and transforms millions of incoming 3D distance data items into relevant, actionable information. This technology provides consumers and companies with a reliable and affordable integrated anti-crash system. It also ensures safe navigation and enables prompt action in civil-security applications and ensures both fast response and maximum performance for drones in defense uses.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.
  • The first obstacle-avoidance algorithm in a dynamic environment based on cutting-edge, laser sensor technology
  • Ultra-compact and miniaturized design that fits into a tiny, mass-market microcontroller
  • 10x cheaper than comparable systems
  • A highly integrated perception system that weighs less than 40 grams
  • Seamless integration in existing drone technologies

In its continuing work on the prototype, Leti will equip a fleet of drones with this technology to show they detect and avoid nearby drones, fit miniaturized radar sensors on the fleet, enable detours to safe routs when obstacles are detected and enable autonomous flight. Excited about this new technology? More info is available now.
