TerraBee’s TeraRanger One Provides Proximity/Collision Avoidance From Any Drone
” Professional drone pilots are benefitting from a fast distance- to target data being streamed to their live video feed to assist with complex flights in close proximity to potential obstacles and hazards.
The TeraRanger Inspection Drone Kit utilises the small, lightweight (8g) and high-performance TeraRanger One distance sensor/s and a small electronics board to interface to the live analogue video feed. Two kits are available, one with a single sensor and the other with three sensors but the solution can support up to 8 sensors, simultaneously monitoring different directions.”
” Greg Watts, Commercial Manager at Terabee explains, “TeraRanger distance sensors are optimised for use in lightweight mobile robotics, and drones are one of the main applications we support. Our sensors are frequently used as a precision altimeter to give relative distance-to-ground data and for collision avoidance around the perimeter of the drone. By displaying the distance data to the live video feed we can give pilots valuable information and an added level of security”.”
