VOXL m500: Development Drone Built in the USA
Autonomous development drone with GPS-denied navigation and obstacle avoidance. Development capabilities for PX4, ROS, VIO and 4G/LTE, right out of the box!
“Integrating drones into the national airspace, especially in high-density urban areas, is challenging. Tall buildings and flight distance mean operating beyond the range of typical remote control, so the integration of ModalAI has been crucial to our efforts.”
“Qualcomm Technologies provides the cutting-edge technologies that enable connected machines like drones and robots to be smarter and more autonomous. With our silicon and ModalAI’s VOXL solution, we are proud to help usher in the era of drone deliveries.”
"We’ve partnered with ModalAI in the past for our various projects and continue to work with them because their U.S.-made autopilots like the VOXL deliver high-performance, reliability and operate on a developer friendly, open platform. VOXL is the only credit-card sized, cellphone grade, highly integrated PCB that is available in the market for full autonomy"
“The number of failures is non-existent, to be honest, the support is unparalleled.”
"Qualcomm spun out ModalAI in 2018 to focus on drones and autonomy. ModalAI is an official Blue UAS supplier and makes developmental platforms, perfect for companies like us that want to experiment with autonomy and ML algorithms on a US-made system."
"We're enjoying working with your VOXL hardware. I've adopted the m500 as the basis of an aerial robotics course I'm teaching here at UT Austin. I don't know of any development MAV as good as the m500. Thank you for your hard work to build it and make it available."
