Smaller, Smarter, Safer

Accelerate Your Autonomous Drone Development

ModalAI accelerates autonomy development by offering development kits for sUAS, drones and robots leveraging autonomous computer vision, flight control and communications systems. These flight controllers, drones, and companion computers are built in the USA. 

Unleash Your Drone's Superpowers with VOXL

Ready to Fly Development Drones

ModalAI offers multiple ready-to-fly development drones. They are all assembled in the USA. Each drone is manually calibrated and flight tested for VIO-based GPS-denied navigation and Obstacle Avoidance before shipping. You can fly this indoors under the power of computer vision, or outdoors with GPS. The stereo image sensors in front enable obstacle avoidance. 

 

VOXL Supports Multiple Radios

  • WiFi is built in for easy debugging
  • An add-on for 5G or 4G/LTE enables cloud connectivity and BVLOS over cellular
  • An add-on for Microhard or DoodleLabs enables long-range, peer to peer communications
