Aerotenna Drone Sensor Systems Review


The Aerotenna Drone Sensor Systems Review

Aerotenna Sensor Systems technology improves a 360° performance with advancements all levels. With Aerotenna ardupilot/autopilot features including auto takeoff, landing and way-point navigation have become standard on mid to high end drone hardware for hobbyists, Commercial, Government, and Military applications.

Now, the focus is on “sense-and-avoid”, the next potential breakthrough that can enable truly autonomous flight of small UAVs and lead to a dramatic increase in real world drone applications.

Despite drone manufacturers and technology providers touting the capabilities of their latest products and solutions, current sense-and-avoidance systems cannot provide reliable obstacle collision avoidance in all sensor input conditions.

Even the latest and most expensive consumer drones can fail to avoid collision when faced with a number of real world situations due to limitations in the sensors being used: optical sensors which require good lighting, and LiDAR and ultrasonic sensors which require ideal weather conditions.

A Radar Solution for Obstacle Collision Avoidance

The team at Aerotenna has engineered and tested a microwave radar solution for obstacle collision avoidance system. Aerotenna μSharp, a 360° sense-and-avoid radar small enough to be integrated into consumer drones, has the robust performance needed for reliable obstacle avoidance in any weather condition at any time of day or night.

μSharp – 360° Sense-and-Avoid Radar

The μSharp 360° is the first UAV radar system and offers 360° degree collision avoidance sensing. It scans 360° degrees without blind spots, locating targets on the horizon for reliable and quick reactions to change flight course. It’s ideal for applications that require high resolution in-flight sensing and collision avoidance for walls, buildings, tree branches and others in outdoor environment.

Features:

  • Miniaturized / compact  and lightweight design with low-power-consumption
  • Advanced target detection and recognition algorithms
  • 360° degree electronic scan without blind spots
  • All-weather / day and night performance
  • Miniaturized / compact and lightweight design (<150 grams) with low power consumption (<3 watts)
  • Long range with adaptive sensing range adjustment based on flying speed (up to 200m)
  • High accuracy (up to 5cm range resolution)
  • Fast response time (up to 90 Hz update rate)
  • Advanced target detection and recognition algorithms

Aerotenna’s suite of drone sensing and processing solutions

μSharp scans 360° degrees without blind spots, detects locates obstacles on the azimuth horizon quickly and reliably, allowing correction of flight course in real-time to prevent air-collisions.

The system incorporates adaptive sensing technology that optimizes its response, regardless of flight status. With its robust performance and integrated design, μSharp is a modern collision avoidance radar system for any UAV.


μSharp Patch Sense and Avoid Radar

The μSharp Patch Collision Avoidance Radar offers the best flexibility for customers looking for the optimal collision avoidance solution for your applications. You may decide on a single patch and rely on the all weather proof high performance sensing from Aerotenna for your UAVs’ safe flight. Or you may choose to arrange multiple patches on your UAVs to cover the various directions that are critical for your applications.

Features:

  • Higher payload with compact and lightweight design.
  • Longer flight time with ultra low power consumption.
  • High performance target detection and advanced algorithms.
  • Miniaturized design (6.5 x 4.5 x 0.8cm) with low power consumption (<1.5 W).
  • Robust and reliable performance in any weather and lighting condition.
  • Advanced target detection and recognition algorithms.

The newly released OcPoC mini is engineered to enable sensor fusion and onboard real-time processing for multi-sensor drone platforms. With over 100 I/Os for sensor integration and redundancy, ARM processor and FPGA structure, OcPoC mini has the processing power and efficiency to handle complex drone applications while maintaining safe and stable flight. Just like the µSharp Patch, OcPoC mini has easy integration with any airframe and open-source flight stack.

μPilot – Active-Sensing Autopilot

The μPilot is our “Active Sensing Autopilot” platform integrated with Aerotenna’s μSharp Sensor. A system-on-chip processor, composed of an FPGA and a dual-core ARM processor, conducts radar signal and autonomous flight control processing. The μPilot active sensing autopilot platform can equip both multi-rotatory and fixed-wing airframes. Its flexible I/O-interface is compatible with any Aerotenna or third-party sensor.

Features:

  • System-on-chip design with radar processor and flight controller
  • Miniaturized, compact, lightweight design with low power consumption
  • Autonomous collision-avoidance algorithm
  • Flexible configuration on either multi-rotatory or fix-wing airframes
  • Extra sensor integration and data fusion capability
  • MATLAB/Simulink interface for advanced algorithms implementation
