Object-Following1

 

Discover autonomous object following

Autonomous object following is the ability for the UAV to autonomously follow an object that is being tracked by the camera. Using the touch-screen enabled controller, the pilot can tap on any moving object and the UAV will automatically alter it’s flight path to follow.

  • Touch screen & point click following
  • Follow a car, a human or even another UAV
  • Object following through remote device or command center
 

Advanced safety features ensure a secure flight

Automated pre-flight checks

The DeltaQuad automatically performs pre-flight checks. Depending on the workflow settings it will prevent take-off if certain conditions fail.

Redundant flight system

A redundant flight system allows for automatic fallback recovery in the event of a failure in the fixed-wing or hover flight system.

Mission Validator

Using the Mission Validator you can be assured the mission is safe to fly based on the checks performed.

Continuous in-flight monitoring

The UAV monitors itself during flight. If it is incapable of maintaining safe fixed-wing flight it will abort the mission and revert back to rotor flight.

ADS-B

The ADS-B add-on can detect and avoid most manned aviation. This is often required for certified operation and improves overall safetyADS-B

Live nose camera (FPV)

A First Person View nose camera feed provides the operator with a pilot view of the vehicle during flight. This improves situational awareness and flight safety.
