Increasing Drone Productivity by Smart Edge Data Processing

Thursday, October 1, 2020 | 10:00AM - 11:00AM Eastern Time

Processing of sensor data (IMUs, Camara’s, ToF, lidars, etc.) in drones significantly consumes power. This directly shortens the flight range or duration. In this webinar, Teraki will discuss how to extend a drone’s flight time & range by making processing of Data (time series, video and 3D point clouds) very efficient whilst increasing the machine learning accuracy. We will talk about smart ROI and TOI selection and cover 3D point cloud sensors such as ToF and lidar. For drones operated by video-driven remote control, Teraki will show how to lower video transmission latency – that works seamlessly in low-bandwidth situations.

Top 5 Takeaways:

  • Improving Drone flight time and energy consumption
  • Smart handling of large amount of drone-sensor data at the EDGE
  • Improve AI model accuracy and continuously update model in the drone
  • Process 10X more sensor data at the same processor
  • Establish real-time transmission in low bandwidth conditions
