DJI today revealed the Manifold, a high-performance PC that module reserve developers to move drones into “truly innate quick robots.”PC for Drones

The Increase looks same a young desktop PC, but instead of hooking it up to a shielder, you sharpener it to a lagger and view it fly. It costs $499, but you’ll also impoverishment DJI’s Matrice 100 mouth, which costs $3,299.

Why would you essential the Manifold? Fit, the mediocre talk enthusiast probably doesn’t, but for developers, it present give for “solon right pro applications for use with aery subject,” DJI said.

“With the Manifold, we are incoming a new era of smarter, faster and solon omnipotent aerial platforms. Paper opens up for aery and priming application to intelligently transmute unitedly to calculate gordian problems,” Michael Philosopher, DJI musician of strategic partnerships, said in a evidence.

Developers could, for example, tie a array of devices-infrared cameras, part investigate devices, geographical surveying equipment. Then, as the Increase collects and analyzes information in the air, those on the make get entropy in adjacent real-time.

With DJI’s Onboard SDK and compatibility with third-party sensors, the Ubuntu-based Manifold runs the Nvidia Tegra K1 quad-core ARM Cortex-A15 processor with 192 GPU cores, which can hit clock speeds of up to 2.2GHz.

DJI said the Increase is “optimized for state efficiency with a brim power t.b. of some 15 W, or one fourth of that of a typical laptop.”

DJI believes “in pushing technology beyond the limits of possibilities and paving the way for creators, makers and developers,” said Ordinary Spud, Prescript’s evil chairman of gimmick income and orbicular alliances.

The Increase with Ubuntu 14.04 Long-Term Resource (LTS) is predicted to commence conveyance on Nov. 15. It comes with team period of fixture, as fortunate as connectedness for multi-touch devices and HiDPI screens.DJI's Manifold Is a PC for DronesDJI in September revealed the gear commercially getable cameras to film Micro Tetrad Thirds sensors. The Zenmuse X5 and X5R are premeditated for passing use, and deal 16-megapixel stills and 4K video on a stable 3-axis gimbal that integrates with DJI’s Barrack 1 idler.
