Intel unveiled a quadcopter on Tuesday, aimed at developers, researchers, and UAV enthusiasts to “help get applications airborne quickly.”
According to Intel, the ready-to-fly unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) development platform is a fully assembled quadcopter, built around the Intel Aero Compute Board, with a Linux operating system, and RealSense for vision.
The drone also has AirMap’s software development kit pre-loaded. AirMap, basically, helps drone users fly only where it’s safe and legal to do so.
AirMap also makes data accessible in real time to other entities, including airports and regulators who require information on how and where drones are operating.
The Aero Ready-to-Fly drone will be available to purchase Q4 2016, although Intel did not announce a price or sale date.
