DJI has unveiled a new addition to their range of quadcopter with the launch of the new DJI Matrice 100 Drone that is capable of flying for 40 minutes and able to swerve around obstacles thanks to a new system called Guidance.
Guidance is an obstacle avoidance system that DJI is integrating with its new developer-focused Matrice 100 quadcopter, and uses an array of ultrasonic sensors and stereo cameras to detect when the drone flies too close to objects.
“Guidance is a revolutionary visual sensing system. With a powerful processing core, integrated visual cameras, ultrasonic sensors, and the most advanced computer vision algorithms in the world, Guidance protects your platform and gives you a new level of safety and confidence in flight. Guidance includes five sensor modules and one central processor.”
The DJI Matrice 100 Drone is ready to fly out of the box and comes supplied with two battery slots that provide enough juice to keep the drone in flight for upto 40 minutes. Watch the video below to learn more.
Both the DJI drone Matrice 100 and new Guidance system will start shipping towards the end of this month and the Matrice 100 drone will be priced at $3,299 while the Guidance technology will cost $999.
