We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve partnered with ModalAI to launch a direct integration between their VOXL® 2 autopilot and Doodle Labs’ nano-OEM and mini-OEM Smart Radios.
The integration between Doodle Labs Smart Radios and ModalAI’s VOXL 2 autopilot empowers drone OEMs to seamlessly build highly intelligent drone systems with a powerful and reliable datalink.
The Smart Radio series is powered by Mesh Rider® to to provide long-range, high-throughput data links between one or more mobile units and a control station. The mini-OEM and nano-OEM form factors are optimized for drone use with incredibly low-SWAP and are available in 2.4 GHZ as well as Helix, M1-M6 (1625 -2500 MHz) designed for the Blue UAS program.
VOXL 2 is ModalAI’s latest autopilot, powered by the Qualcomm® Flight RB5 5G platform. At only 16 grams, VOXL 2 boasts more AI computing than any other autopilot. VOXL 2 integrates a PX4 real-time flight controller with an 8-core CPU up to 15 TOPs, seven image sensors, TDK® IMUs and barometer, 5G connectivity and is assembled in the USA. The new computing platform accelerates the development of commercial drone and robot solutions to realize the benefits of autonomous AI and 5G.
VOXL 2 enables autonomy and communications for indoor and outdoor drones and robots with vision-based SLAM and AI for movement, designed specifically for GPS-denied, autonomous UAVs with obstacle avoidance. With a 5G add-on, VOXL 2 enhances mission critical navigation, including beyond visual line-of-sight (BVLOS) to support safer, more reliable flight.
This integration simplifies component installation and empowers new drone platforms to get airborne as quickly as possible.
VOXL 2 and the mini-OEM and nano-OEM Smart Radios are all low-SWaP options, suitable for even the smallest drone use-cases
VOXL 2 and the Helix Smart Radios are both part of the Blue UAS Framework, fully cleared for use by the US government.
