Emesent has announced the release of its SLAM payload for the new DJI M300 drone.
The CSIRO Data61-developed Hovermap SLAM (Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping) technology allows precise positioning and scanning to take place in GPS-deprived environments.
The new Hovermap module for DJI’s new flagship industry was developed after the company was selected as one of ten global industry partners to be given access to the M300 ahead of its launch, according to Emesent.
CEO Dr. Stefan Hrabar said this development has resulted in a tight integration with the new drone’s operating system.
“DJI has worked closely with our developers and engineers to integrate Hovermap’s software interface with previous drone models and, as a result of that interaction, they’ve become aware of the work that we do,” he said.
“Hovermap allows M300 users to extend the capabilities of the drone significantly. That’s appealing to organisations working in challenging environments which need smart, robust technology to help them collect accurate intelligence for a range of purposes.”
