Autonomy features

Increase safety with the Auterion Autonomy Engine

Auterion Enterprise PX4 enables capabilites on the mission computer that enable the use of visual data and time of flight date to recreate and interpret the environment around them, allowing the drone to detect and avoid obstacles while running on an automated mission.

Stop in front of obstacles

Auterion Enterprise PX4 brings computer vision capabilities to the Linux mission computer on board. If provided with the appropriate sensors and compute power (e.g. with Skynode), the drone recognizes the environment and stops if flying too close to obstacles. Auterion’s Avoidance Distance Indicator helps drone operators move their drones safely during inspection flights. This feature is enabled both during manual flight and autonomous missions.

Fly around obstacles

Obstacle avoidance is the next step after collision prevention. Your drone will safely recognize obstacles in its way, navigate around them, and come back to the original flight path. This feature is enabled for preprogrammed missions like delivery or mapping. Dedicated hardware is required.

Positioning without GPS 

Visual Inertial Odometry (VIO) produces a relative positioning frame that is used to determining a drone’s position when GPS is low, bad, jammed, or not present. This allows the drone to fly indoors, close to high EM disturbance sources like LTE antennas, or jammed areas.  Visual Inertial Odometry (VIO) Accurate positioning without GPS Indoor flights  Flying with EM disturbance

Intelligence at the edge

Proprietary or 3rd party applications can easily be deployed in Docker containers on drones powered by Auterion. Your droned can run deep learning algorithms to segment images or to recognize patterns. Depending on the algorithms, additional computing power might be required on board.
