Dogs :「 Finally, I've done something 」.

Almost Human reports , Machine center editorial department .

As the saying goes 「 No hard work , Only the brave dog hook 」. Last week, , UAV technology company Exyn Technologies Released a video . In the video , One was named Kody The dog touched the screen , And then a drone took off . The company said , This is the first time that a dog has controlled a drone .

After the UAV takes off ,「 Operator 」Kody Just lie down and play , Because its mission has been completed , Leave the rest to the drone .

This interesting video reveals the rapid development of UAV autonomous driving .

at present , Most drones are controlled by people , Including the U.S. military MQ-9 Reaper、RQ-4 Global Hawk. More sophisticated drones , For example, some new models of Dajiang , You can fly on a predetermined route , Achieve autonomous take-off and landing and pass through specific GPS Navigation point , At the same time, use the built-in sonar to avoid obstacles .

and Exyn Technologies This new UAV ExynAero Autonomy has been greatly improved , It can fly autonomously in complex environment such as mine . There are no maps and GPS, And can't communicate with the outside world , UAVs have to find their way back . And all this is due to the company's intelligent control system ——ExynAI .

ExynAI Control system

Exyn Technologies Express ,ExynAI It is the world's first industrial independent software system in the field of UAV , It has no control 、 No need to contact the base station 、 Do not rely on GPS Navigation and other features .

Exyn company CTO Jason Derenick Express ,「 Users can issue commands through the graphical touch interface , This interface allows the user to specify advanced behavior , Such as 『 Explore that area 』. After receiving the command , The system will decompose it into several subtasks to complete .」

for example , standard 「 Automatic reconnaissance 」(scoutonomy) The mission includes taking off 、 Fly to the area to be explored 、 Explore and return . More complex behaviors can also be done , Like reacting to what's found .

Derenick call 「ExynAI At its core is real-time SLAM( Synchronous positioning and map building )pipeline, Help the robot accurately estimate its position and direction in the environment , At the same time, generate a real-time map of the surrounding environment .」

SLAM It is an effective method in robot field , It uses video or other input to build an environment map , But let the UAV perform in real time in a disorganized environment SLAM It's a real achievement .ExynAero Equipped with a lidar system , The system can generate more than 10cm A survey level map of , And can collect 4K video .

ExynAI It can also perform multi robot cooperative tasks , Make multiple UAVs fly in the same airspace , And there's no risk of collision .

The video of the article that shows the dog control at the beginning of the article , In the past few years, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have become more and more mature . Now , Autopilot UAV has enough flexibility and reliability , It can be used for industrial and commercial purposes , They can operate in dangerous or inaccessible spaces .

Exyn Technologies company

Headquartered in Philadelphia, USA Exyn Technologies The company is the University of Pennsylvania GRASP Laboratory byproducts , Is commercializing cutting-edge research and development in the field of autonomous flight and aerial robots .

The company's R & D team consists of many top talents , Research includes optimal control 、 perception 、 Sports planning 、 State estimation 、 Multi sensor data fusion, synchronous positioning and map building . More than half of the team includes UPenn、Georgia Tech and Johns Hopkins Get a doctor's degree or complete a postdoctoral research in an organization within the .

Exyn Technologies The UAV has been developed in many fields , Like with geological drilling Canada Ascot Resources Cooperate to explore old mines , And Dock Street Brewery Breweries cooperate to make new beer ( The UAV is responsible for autonomous flight and transportation of hops in the plant ).
