Fully integrated COM Express module for demanding camera functionality
Rapid expansion and development in the drone market have led to drones that perform increasingly advanced and complex functions. Originally seen as simply interesting projects for hobbyists, drones have become mainstream and their uses continue to expand.
For drones to maximize their usefulness they need to become “smart” in much the same way as the Internet of Things has penetrated general electronics. Features, including GPS for navigation, proximity sensors to avoid collisions, and custom software to intelligently perform tasks, all require computing power.
With the rather stringent limitations on the device itself, it becomes critical to choose all components, and the controller board in particular, very carefully.
This case study takes a closer look at the challenges faced when integrating computing solutions and how we helped our client to find the best match for their drone integration project.
