Autonomous Drone
Collision Avoidance System

Autonomously sense obstacles and avoid collisions during drone missions using optimal sensors and intelligent software. FlytCAS is compatible with all major drone platforms.

What is FlytCAS?

FlytCAS is an intelligent software solution that enables collision avoidance on commercial drones. The ability to sense objects in real-time and avoid imminent collisions is key to autonomous drone operations in complex environments. Drone obstacle avoidance is highly contextual – and hence requires intelligent algorithms and well-designed workflows implemented in robust software that augments best-in-class sensor hardware. With these capabilities tested on multiple outdoor use-cases, the FlytCAS solution can be deployed on DJI, PX4, Ardupilot and other drone platforms. Walls, equipment, trees, utility towers, fences and nearly any such stationary object can be detected in time to prevent damage to property, infrastructure and assets as well as drones themselves.

Fully Autonomous

Automatically sense obstacles & avoid collisions – hover in place, RTH, or abort the mission.


Reliably avoid collisions during manual as well as waypoint-wise autonomous flights.

Intelligent Sensing

Sophisticated algorithms to enable a variety of object sensors eg. IR, LiDAR, Sonar, etc.


Choose the optimal mix of object sensors. Design a sense-and-avoid workflow for your specific use-case.

How Does it Work?

FlytCAS Solution Drone

FlytCAS provides object sensing and collision avoiding capabilities by fusing data from multiple sensors and using intelligent software to decide, in real-time, the appropriate course of action when a collision is imminent. Depending on the application context, data from LiDAR, IR, ToF and/or Sonar sensors may be fused with vision data from RGB/thermal/stereo cameras. This data is digitally filtered and computationally analyzed to automatically detect objects – quickly, accurately and reliably. The software controller then precisely commands the drone to automatically hover/loiter, return to a base location or abort-and-land in place. Forward sensing can be deployed to begin with, and quickly matured to include backwards and downwards sensing.
