description

Add Autonomy to PX4 and Pixhawk®

Note: this product may be on back-order, the VOXL "legacy" variant of this same board and VOXL Flight, which includes an MCU, are bot available now

VOXL is an open drone and robotics companion computer that pairs with a Flight Core or Pixhawk® flight controller as an obstacle avoidance sensor.

This MV kit includes VOXL-DK kit plus 3 global shutter, computer vision cameras.

Latest Autonomy Features

The VOXL advances the Snapdragon Flight and Qualcomm Flight Pro architectures to provide great support for:

  • PX4 Avoidance and Navigation
  • ROS  / ROS2 / MAVROS / MAVSDK
  • Open source Linux kernel, cross-compilers, PX4, ROS, OpenCV
  • Docker build environment for CPU, GPU (OpenCL) and DSP (Hexagon SDK) heterogeneous computer vision and deep learning processing.
  • Run Docker on VOXL target for improved portability and maintenance.
  • Add cellular LTE connectivity for beyond visual line of sight (add-on).
