Sky Drone has joined Nvidia’s Inception incubator, to develop AI processing for 4G and 5G connected drones.

The Hong Kong-based maker of drone connectivity units has announced its entry into Nvidia’s Incept program, suggesting integration of Nvidia GPUs for artificial intelligence in future product offerings.

Sky Drone’s products are typically used in BVLOS (Beyond Visual Line Of Sight) applications and assist with air traffic monitoring systems. Under the Inception program, the firm will gain access to Nvidia hardware, developer forums and training with Nvidia’s Deep Learning Institute.

“Leveraging NVIDIA AI processing combined with our collaboration with China Mobile HK on 5G connected drones, we are now ready to handle rapid AI processing of data coming from a drone in mid-air and reacting on it in real-time,” said Boris Boege, CEO of Sky Drone. “This is a game changer for truly useful connected drones flying BVLOS.”
