DJI Launches Experimental Drone & Collision Avoidance System.

The object-avoidance system developed by DJI is the first ever system of this kind, and can be installed on the M100, or any other drone that is fitted with UART, and USB ports A Chinese technology company DJI is manufacturing a drone that can be piloted wearing a set of Oculus virtual-reality glasses, and drone pilots will be able to control the direction of it simply by waving their hands. Today, DJI, the world’s largest maker of consumer drones, unveiled both a new quadcopter aimed at developers, as well as an in-flight object-avoidance system and a software developer kit for its existing Phantom and Inspire drones.

Now as if avoiding obstacles like trees, lamps, signboards, and other objects wasn’t enough, drone pilots would have to deal with avoiding other drones too. The latest quadcopter, Matrice M100 is specially being rolled out for developers, so that they can test it with a number of new hardware, and software tools, DJI said. The drone is designed as a ready-to-fly object, and doesn’t require any programming, as DJI said it “includes everything needed to fly with minimal assembly and no need for tuning or programming.” Some of the new applications that can utilized with the drone include gesture-control systems, and Oculus goggles. According to DJI manager Navjot Singh, “The Matrice 100 is always aware of its surroundings, and will automatically adjust its flight path when closing in on objects or obstructions.” DJI’s Matrice 100 will retail for $3,299 with the Guidance system priced at $999.

Like DJI’s other drones, the M100 can utilize the company’s Lightbridge video transmission system, which allows the unmanned aerial vehicle to utilize any camera with HDMI or analog video output. Other than that, the Matrice has been fitted with high-tech stereo camera, and ultrasonic sensors that allows it to avoid flying close to objects within 65 feet of radius.

Created in conjunction with the Silicon Valley venture capital firm Accel Partners, SkyFund will invest at least $10 million in startups building applications for DJI drone platforms.
