Intel introduced a quad-copter drone called Aero at its annual developers conference. The drone was built for developers who want to create and test apps for drones.
The Aero Ready To Fly drone is a fully-assembled with compute board, integrated depth and vision capabilities using Intel® RealSense™ Technology — the fastest path available from Intel for developers to get applications airborne. Aero Ready To Fly Drone supports several “plug and play” options, including a flight controller with Dronecode PX4 software, Intel RealSense for vision and AirMap SDK for airspace services which is an app used to tells users where they can and can't fly. It also gives users real-time info on wildfires and the like, as well as gives you an easy way to plot routes.
The Aero compute board is available for $399 at click.intel.com. The Aero Ready To Fly Drone will be available by end of year.
Intel also showed other inventions such the award-winning Yuneec Typhoon H with Intel RealSense, The technology which uses intelligent obstacle navigation to not only avoid objects, but also plot an alternative course around obstacles. The Typhoon H with Intel RealSense is available now for $1,899. Intel has helped in creating a world classs technological service to both developers and end users.
