Drone and Robotics Development Kits

VOXL is ModalAI’s autonomous computing computing and platform built around the Snapdragon 821. The VOXL architecture combines a single board computer with a depth camera, flight controller and cellular modem to create fully autonomous, connected drones and robots.

Single Board Computer:  VOXL-DK is light-weight, but powerful. It is driven by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821, runs Linux, has tons of I/O and pre-certified WiFi. Demo Video

Depth Camera: VOXL-DK-MV is designed for quick integration of computer vision based autonomy. It bundles the VOXL-DK and computer vision cameras for depth mapping and visual tracking for GPS-denied navigation. Demo Video

Cellular Communications: The VOXL-ACC-LTEH-NA is an add-on that plugs in to the VOXL’s board to board connector. It enables LTE capability for the following North American cellular carriers: Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile. Demo Video

Flight Controller: ModalAI has a Pixhawk FMUv5x-derived flight control board coming in October, 2019. This board is designed to operate with VOXL, but can be used independently as well. In the meantime VOXL can be paired with any Pixhawk compatible flight controller running PX4.

The VOXL technology builds on the Qualcomm® Flight Pro™ architecture by adding comprehensive software development support with a build-able Linux kernel, cross-compile SDKs, LTE, time of flight cameras, Docker images for development and more. See our documentation for more details about what is supported.

FMU-DK

An FMUv5x (Pixhawk) derived autopilot, made in the USA, compatible with the Pixhawk and PX4 ecosystem.  The FMU-DK is 41.4mm x 37mm and powered by an STM32F7 microprocessor. Pixhawk compliant connectors.

Expected to sample in September 2019

The VOXL-DK enables the core autopilot hardware functionality for the US Army’s Group 1 (sub-19lbs) sUAS.

Key features of the Group 1 UAS Architecture:

  • Support for popular open drone and robotics software packages: PX4, ROS, OpenCV
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 with quad-core CPU, GPU, and 2 programmable DSPs
  • STM32F7 Pixhawk compatible architecture
  • Comprehensive software development support with build-able Linux kernel, cross-compile SDKs, Docker images for development and more
  • Support for time-stamp synchronized global shutter, time of flight cameras and IMU enable best in class SLAM systems
  • Support for carrier-based LTE, LTE in DOD spectrum and Microhard communications support all coming in 2019
  • Open source documentation
