Aerial Curiosity drone

research system

Even more complex than robots on the ground, are airborne robots. That is why we have created our own drone, equipped with the Curiosity Core as its brains the Aerial Curiosity. The Aerial Curiosity allows you to quickly apply drones in your industry. It combines the ease of programming of the Curiosity Core, the accurate localization of the Verax systems and extremely reliable autonomous flight.

 

The Aerial Curiosity is a modular quadcopter platform which allows you to develop your own application quickly and hassle-free. Simply attach your own sensors or actuators and make desired changes to any part of the software through MATLAB Simulink (or C-code) using our tool suite.

The Aerial Curiosity is the ultimate platform that allows for rapid development of new drone applications, testing of new sensors and validation of novel control algorithms.

Applications

Aerial Curiosity 

1. Add a small robotic arm to the Aerial Curiosity to waiter your guests.
2. Analyze the 3D sound profile of a highway by attaching a sound sensor.
3. Validate your new Model Predictive Controller by extending computational capability and implementing the algorithm in MATLAB Simulink.
