Seeing with RealSense eyes
The Yuneec Typhoon H
is also designed to be modular and its default situational awareness (ultrasonic proximity detection) can be boosted with the addition of an Intel RealSense camera module.
RealSense uses a combination of an infrared camera, infrared laser projector and a normal RGB colour camera to perceive depth. Working alongside an Intel Atom processor, the RealSense module crunches the camera data to enable the Typhoon H drone to accurately map its surroundings in 3D. It can then make flight corrections (in real time) to avoid obstacles.
