Introducing the Skydio X2 – A Cutting-Edge Drone with Advanced AI-Pilot Assistance
The Skydio X2 is a revolutionary drone designed for precision flight control and obstacle avoidance. With advanced AI-pilot assistance and cutting-edge technology, this drone is ideal for a variety of applications, from search and rescue missions to commercial inspections.
Weighing in at 1325 g, the Skydio X2 is lightweight and easy to maneuver, making it a versatile tool for any task. It has a flight time of up to 35 minutes, allowing for extended flights without the need for constant battery changes.
With a max flight speed of 25 mph (40 km/h) and wind speed resistance of up to 23 mph, the Skydio X2 can handle challenging weather conditions. It also has a max service ceiling of up to 12,000 ft, allowing for high-altitude operations.
The drone’s dimensions when unfolded and flying are 26.1” X 22.4“ X 8.3” (66 x 56 x 20 cm), while its dimensions when folded without the battery are 11.9“ X 5.5” X 3.6“ (30 x 15 x 10 cm). The operational temperature range is -10°C to 43°C.
The Skydio X2 comes with a controller that has a dimension of 10.75” x 5.25 x 3.0” and weighs 1130 g. It can be controlled through the Skydio Enterprise App and has wired links through USB or HDMI, allowing for seamless data transfer. It operates on 5 GHz frequencies and can reach a maximum range of up to 6 km (5 GHz). The video feed is 720p at 30 fps.
The drone also comes with Skydio Autonomy Enterprise, which includes a main processor of NVIDIA Tegra X2 SOC and a camera configuration of 6x cameras in trinocular configuration. It has true 360° environment coverage and omnidirectional obstacle avoidance coverage. The 3D world model update rate is over 1 million points per second, while the world model-to-action update rate is 500 iterations per second. The onboard AI includes 9 custom deep networks used in flight, and user-selectable subjects for tracking include people and motor vehicles. It can track up to 20 simultaneous objects of interest, and calibration is automated for lens parameters, cameras, wind speed, and air density.
The Skydio X2’s primary camera system includes a color sensor type of Sony IMX577 1/2.3” 12.3MP CMOS, a color lens focal length of 41mm (35mm format equivalent), and a color video resolution of 4K / 60 fps with 16x digital zoom. The color video format is MPEG-4 (AVC/H.264, HEVC/H.265), and the still resolution color is 4056×3040 (12 MP). The dynamic range pitch is 13 stops, while the controllable range is -110° to +45° (-110° to +90° w AEF). The thermal sensor type is FLIR Uncooled VOx microbolometer, and the thermal resolution is 320×256, with a thermal lens focal length of 13mm (35mm format equivalent) and a thermal frame rate of 9 Hz.
Overall, the Skydio X2 is a game-changing drone that combines advanced AI-pilot assistance and cutting-edge technology to provide unmatched precision and control for various applications.
