Launching the new Vision Kit S: develop your computer vision apps with Skynode X

November 16, 2023

Vision Kit S enhances Skynode's capabilities in computer vision

We are thrilled to announce the launch of the Auterion Vision Kit S, an optional companion for our Skynode X platform.

This Vision Kit S will provide a starting point for developers to leverage the Auterion all-in-one autonomy platform and create computer vision applications, such as obstacle detection and avoidance, visual inertial odometry (VIO), precision landing, QR detection, or targeting. 

Applications developed with the Vision Kit S are already fielded and operating in real-world scenarios, such as automated safe precision landing for drone deliveries.

With the Auterion Vision Kit S, developers can seamlessly integrate computer vision capabilities into drone operations. The process is simple and hassle-free – just plug the USB cable into Skynode X, and a pre-installed driver will connect the camera to Skynode X automatically. Developers, whether seasoned or new to computer vision, can access the developer kit to build their own applications.

The Auterion Vision Kit S is especially valuable in situations where the camera’s vision serves as the primary navigation for the system, such as in GPS-denied environments. The kit empowers users to leverage the potential of Skynode X as an all-in-one platform for computer navigation, an area that the industry is increasingly focusing on.

To ensure a smooth development experience, we offer software development kits (SDKs) and a sample app that developers can use as a reference while building their own applications.

With the launch of the Auterion Vision Kit S, we are empowering developers and drone enthusiasts to push the boundaries of what can be accomplished with computer vision in drone operations. When combined with Skynode X, the kit offers new capabilities for increased situational awareness, improved obstacle avoidance, and precise navigation.

Join us in embracing this exciting technology and discover the endless possibilities of the Auterion Vision Kit S.

The kit is available for you to order now through the Skynode X quote form.
