Dual Spectrum Computer Vision Platform Revealed by Aerialtronics

This Monday Aerialtronics released Pensar, a twin-sensor computer vision platform for drones. Pensar combines a 30x zoom Sony daylight camera and a FLIR Boson thermal IR camera sensor data and parses it via a deep learning algorithm. The platform rests on the NVIDIA Jetson module for real-time processing and feedback.

With its real-time video processing, it can track objects for annotation, such as deviations in points of interest or blurring out people or signage for privacy reasons. Its computer vision algorithms are robust enough to read the characters on a license plate and virtually any other alphanumeric signage at a distance while in flight. Overall, the system decreases the time needed for post-processing and allows for in the moment emergency detection like gas leaks, or perimeter breeches when used for security surveillance.

InterDrone: Tackling sense-and-avoid technology in drones

Some day, businesses and operators hope that drones will be able to become fully autonomous and fly beyond line of sight. But in order for the FAA to feel safe, there needs to be a system in place that allows them to operate safely and efficiently without hitting anything.
