Autel Robotics Announces New Camera Modules for X-Star Series Drones at CES 2017
The camera UAV maker, Autel Robotics, today announced that it will offer two new camera modules for the current X-Star series of 2017 four-axis aircraft. The first will be FLIR dual core dual thermal and vision camera module. The second will upgrade the visual camera to a picture quality using a 1-inch CMOS sensor. The two modules will exhibit the Autel Robot LVCC booth at CES 2017, South Hall 2 – 25618.
“We are always striving to provide the best possible user experience for all aspects of our products, including creating long-term value for our customers,” said Natalie Cheng, director of the US Autel Robot Communications. “We are excited to bring these new dimensions to X-Star UAVs and see amazing things our customers will do to add flexibility … the possibilities are limitless.”
FLIR dual-core module will be launched in the first quarter of 2017. It can display temperature and standard, visual light images. This will allow the user to switch between two flights, view the picture in picture at the same time, or see a mixed image. These features will provide a better flying experience as well as a detailed thermal image that fits many applications, including checks and first-responders.
The 1-inch sensor camera module will be available in the second quarter of 2017. This upgraded camera shoots 4k super HD video and 20px photos. Larger sensors will allow this camera to perform better in dimly lit scenes, capturing more movie images with a larger aperture.
Autel Robotics also announced its X‑Star series Software Development Kit and an update to its vertical takeoff and landing Kestrel platform at CES 2017.
Other activities at the Autel Robotics booth will include daily X‑Star Premium giveaways, a Technology Concept Showcase, product demonstrations, a flight simulator, and an immersive, virtual reality flight experience.
