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.
Navigation and Obstacle Avoidance: 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 LTE Add-on plugs in to the VOXL’s board to board connector. When paired with a Pixhawk® flight controller or Flight Core, command, control and video is enabled for beyond visual line of sight operation (BVLOS). Demo Video
Flight Controller: The ModalAI Flight Core runs the PX4 flight controller, and is made in the USA. The Flight Core can be paired with VOXL for obstacle avoidance and GPS-denied navigation, or used independently as a standalone flight controller.
Built by Experienced Roboticists: ModalAI is the same R&D team that led the original Qualcomm Robotics efforts including Snapdragon Flight and Qualcomm Flight Pro. Read more about ModalAI here.
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.
The VOXL-DK enables the core autopilot hardware functionality for the US Army’s Group 1 (sub-19lbs) sUAS.
