Sophisticated computer vision and landing algorithms to detect and approach the landing site
Eliminates the need of any external sensors. Just requires an onboard CC and camera
System can land itself, reattempt landing if lost tag, or trigger fail-safe based on external conditions
API endpoints and edge management through cloud with multiple site detection and custom tag assignment
“Our drones used to land inaccurately in the crop fields, on the unstable and wet soil. FlytDock helped us land it accurately on the back of our truck.”Darren RajFounder & CEO - Agribugs
“With the combined FlytBase precision landing technology and our new AirBox Kits, any drone can now deliver to AirBox Home. This new innovation will create a drone agnostic platform for last-mile secure package deliveries.”Brandon PargoeCo-Founder - Drone Delivery Systems
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.
Deploy tags on the landing sites to precisely hover or land for package delivery. Trigger drone actions based on the sites.
Accurately land the drone on the docking platform, charging station, back of your truck or any elevated platform.
Autonomously navigate through warehouse aisle to scan or monitor packages in a GPS-denied environment.
Precisely align the drone to the structures that need regular inspection and monitoring without manual intervention.
Visual Position Estimation
Estimating translation and orientation with respect to a visual marker
Just requires an onboard CC, camera and ArTag on ground
Plug & Play with all commercial drones, based on DJI, Ardupilot or PX4
Get precise landing within an error bound of 15cms
Can be configured for use in indoor (GPS denied) environments
Fail Safe Modes
Trigger fail safe actions in scenarios like heavy winds or missing tag
