不轻易言“坠”的的无人机,雷达系统上线

【不轻易言“坠”的的无人机,雷达系统上线】近日,Arbe机器人在TechCrunch聚会获得褒扬,其内置的避撞系统表现十分出色。该系统耗电量小,由雷达自动检测并规避障碍物,可以扫描半径200米的范围,反应机敏。针对近几年频繁出现的无人机坠毁事件,该系统正在尝试向无人机迁移,使你的无人机可以相互感应并且避免碰撞。

Soon your drone can avoid collisions using radar

Drones are all fun and games until their rotors casually meet your body. To avoid injuries, lawsuits and costly repairs, techies have built collision avoidance systems so your unmanned aerial vehicle automatically swerves away from people and obstacles. But existing camera-based solutions drain batteries and slow down flight speed when dodging things. Arbe Robotics just won TechCrunch's first Tel Aviv Meetup and Pitch-Off last night with its own avoidance system, which counters these drawbacks by using radar to guide drones without stunting flight time.

 

The system consists of a mountable hardware band that scans up to 200 meters in every direction along with software that automatically avoids detected obstacles. If objects larger than a meter enter that radius, the radar system will detect it and automatically move the drone to avoid a collision. Arbe Robotics claims that its solution only uses 5 percent battery life throughout the flight.

 

Obviously, this is for a civilian solution detecting slow-moving obstacles. DARPA has been innovating a collision avoidance system for drones to dodge speedy things like small aircraft and other drones. Since it's currently the size of a shoebox, it won't be coming to small commercial UAVs any time soon. It's also unclear when Arbe Robotics' solution will hit the market, but until then, there's always drone crash insurance.
