Skynode X vs the variety of components you need for a comparable solution

With Skynode X you don’t need to find and assemble a variety of components to power your autonomous vehicle.

Skynode X combines a flight controller, a mission computer and LTE connectivity all in one product. It provides seamless integration among components in one single module, that can easily fit into your hardware product, allowing faster go-to-market.

What can
Skynode™X do?

Skynode™X is much more than a drone autopilot. It transforms any robotic vehicle from a mere mobile camera into a connected autonomous system.

This all-in-one solution combines all the core components and connections needed to rapidly deploy the Auterion software stack on a varied range of drones and robots.

Its compact form factor enhances ease of integration and optimises size, weight and power without compromising on capability. The latest FMU generation, FMUv6x, ensures access to the most mature technology in terms of performance, reliability and precision.
