AERIALTRONICS, a brand from DRONE VOLT Group, officially launches the new version of its PENSAR camera-computer driven by artificial intelligence. A true technological feat, PENSAR is one of the world's first platforms with dual spectrum digital vision that allows real-time analysis of images or data. Infinitely customizable, it can be mounted on professional drone, mobile robot or used as an independent camera.
One of the world's first dual spectrum digital vision platforms with real-time analysis PENSAR, developed in AERIALTRONICS' artificial intelligence laboratory, is one of the world's first dual spectrum digital vision platforms dedicated to real-time data analysis using a miniaturized NVIDIA® embedded processor with 1.5 teraflops of power. Its computing power, accelerated by the NVIDIA® Jetson™ GPU processor in the NVIDIA® Jetson™ module, enables it to detect, recognize, analyze and classify objects or people in real time. Simultaneous data acquisition and processing allows for immediate decision making.
Its integrated camera with a 30x optical zoom makes it possible to spot very small details. Another FLIR thermal camera is used to identify heat sources and determine their temperature. The streams from these two cameras, recorded simultaneously, help optimize image analysis in day and night time and bad weather conditions.
Unlimited potential for infinite applications
Infinitely customizable, this camera-computer offers unlimited potential and can be designed and adapted for multiple applications: surveillance, inspection, public security and anti-terrorist operations, search and rescue, etc. It can be used in a wide range of applications. It’s equipped with a system for facial recognition, object recognition such as license plates, animal recognition animals and similar tasks. A digital “privacy mask” can be integrated into the images to guarantee confidentiality and anonymity.
The intelligent platform comes with an Ubuntu Linux Open Source operating system that allows you to customize it to suit your needs. PENSAR is compatible with open source libraries such as Google's Tensor Flow.
A global market for inspection and surveillance Drones estimated at $1.2 billion
With a global market estimated at approximately $1.2 billion by 2020, the forecasts announced by STATISTA in its study on the global growth of the market for professional UAVs in the field of inspection and surveillance, confirm the strong increase in demand for this industry.
Olivier Gualdoni, CEO of DRONE VOLT, said: "Today, we are proud to present the brandnew PENSAR. This smart camera is the culmination of several months of research and development from the engineers at AERIALTRONICS' artificial intelligence laboratory; they pioneered the development of the first PENSAR and we decided to give this brilliant team the means to continue their work."
