VOXL 2 is powered by the Qualcomm Flight RB5 5G platform with an 8-core CPU up to 3GHz, it integrates a PX4 real-time flight controller, seven image sensors, and is assembled in the U.S. It boasts more AI (artificial intelligence) computing than any other autopilot and enables autonomy and communications for indoor and outdoor drones and robots with vision-based SLAM (simultaneous localization and mapping) technology and AI for movement.
When using the VOXL 2 with a 5G add-on, the autopilot enhances mission critical navigation, including BVLOS (beyond visual line-of-sight). According to ModalAI’s CEO, Chad Sweet, VOXL 2 creates a major leap in computing capability for the UAS (unmanned aerial systems) industry, enabling the next generation of smaller, smarter, and safer drones.
The VOXL 2 autopilot was designed as a user-friendly and accessible system and is already being used by dozens of ModalAI partners who are integrating it into their drones and robot fleets. The company also plans to make the Auterion open-source operating system for drones available on its VOXL 2.
VOXL 2 is now available for purchase and you can order it on the manufacturer’s website for $1,200. You can also take a better look at its capabilities in the video below.
