World’s Smartest Precision Landing Solution

Autonomously land or hover drone over a visual target for delivery, docking station, warehouse or asset inspection

Vision Based

Sophisticated computer vision and landing algorithms to detect and approach the landing site

Reduced Infrastructure

Eliminates the need of any external sensors. Just requires an onboard CC and camera

Fully Autonomous

System can land itself, reattempt landing if lost tag, or trigger fail-safe based on external conditions

Scalable

API endpoints and edge management through cloud with multiple site detection and custom tag assignment

FlytDock is world’s smartest precision target landing solution. Powered by FlytOS, this intelligent plugin utilizes computer vision techniques and dedicated landing algorithms to precisely align, approach and land the multirotor on the ArTag on ground.

Solution Workflow

FlytDock plugin allows for autonomous landing of a drone on a visual marker. It is an onboard module which uses a downward looking monocular camera to detect fiducial markers. These markers (ArUco tags) can be printed and used as landing sites. Pose is estimated using the tag size and calibrated camera information. No other equipment such as lidar or rangefinder is required, as the altitude and location for landing site are found just using the pose estimation of the markers. The onboard controller precisely maneuvers the drone to the desired landing site using FlytAPIs. A web app utility is provided for configuration and monitoring over local network or cloud.

Use Cases

Delivery

Deploy tags on the landing sites to precisely hover or land for package delivery. Trigger drone actions based on the sites.

Docking Station

Accurately land the drone on the docking platform, charging station, back of your truck or any elevated platform.

Warehouse Management

Autonomously navigate through warehouse aisle to scan or monitor packages in a GPS-denied environment.

Inspections

Precisely align the drone to the structures that need regular inspection and monitoring without manual intervention.

Features

Visual Position Estimation

Estimating translation and orientation with respect to a visual marker

Minimal Hardware

Just requires an onboard CC, camera and ArTag on ground

Easy Installation

Plug & Play with all commercial drones, based on DJI, Ardupilot or PX4

High Accuracy

Get precise landing within an error bound of 15cms

Indoor Landing

Can be configured for use in indoor (GPS denied) environments

Fail Safe Modes

Spline Trajectory

Traces a spline trajectory for smooth and precise approach to the tag

Night landing

Light up the ground marker to enable landing in night time

GCS Integration

Integrate with ground station for better control and real-time updates

Cloud Control

Configure and manage the system using a cloud dashboard

Precision Hover Mode

Hover at required distance from the tag for delivery or inspection

Custom ArTags

Use ArUco marker designs, size, and position based on your requirement
