Vision systems developer Immervision has partnered with ModalAI Inc., a manufacturer of autonomous drone and robotics technology. The collaboration will lead to a “ready-to-fly” vision system for drone manufacturers.

The solution will incorporate the Immervision Imvisio-ML and the VOXL 2 platform, providing a 190º FOV, low-light capability, and enhanced perception capabilities running on a Qualcomm QRB5165 processor. The VOXL 2 computing platform, combined with the Imvisio-ML camera module, enhances navigation beyond visual line-of-sight to support safer and more reliable flight performance.

Jean-Sébastien Landry, director of product management at Immervision, said, “As we see more demand for autonomous navigation for drones, it became necessary to extend the drones operating range from bright daylight to challenging low-light conditions. Working with the VOXL 2 platform, this complete solution offers optimal performance for GPS-denied navigation, location, mapping, and obstacle avoidance in all lighting and environmental conditions.”

Both companies are part of the Defense Innovation Unit Blue UAS Framework, which accelerates commercial technology with the aim of providing trusted, advanced capabilities to UAV drone users.
