What is the use of ultrasonic sensor in drones?
In drone technology, ultrasonic sensors are a commonly used sensing device used to measure distances and detect obstacles. Ultrasonic sensors can provide precise distance information by emitting ultrasonic signals and receiving their reflected echoes, and help drones avoid collisions and achieve precise positioning.
Drone obstacle avoidance: ultrasonic sensors
At the heart of a drone's ultrasonic system is a sensor that uses sound waves to measure distance and detect objects. When used for obstacle detection and avoidance, ultrasonic systems create detailed maps of the drone's surroundings by emitting sound waves in multiple directions, allowing it to identify and avoid potential hazards.
Ultrasonic sensors play an important role in UAV environmental sensing. They can detect surrounding objects, terrain and obstacles, such as when operating in confined spaces or near obstacles such as buildings or trees, helping the drone develop a safe flight path and adapt to different environmental conditions.
Drone landing: ultrasonic sensors
The drone is equipped with an ultrasonic sensor that can help the drone land. It can detect the distance between the bottom of the drone and the landing area, determine whether the landing site is safe, and then slowly descend to the landing area.
UAV ultrasonic sensors can perform distance measurement and height measurement, which are also very effective for UAVs to maintain high stability while hovering, avoid collisions, and automatically avoid obstacles.
Which Autel drones use ultrasonic sensors?
Autel EVO Lite+, Autel EVO II Series. Drones equipped with ultrasonic sensors can achieve precise positioning and navigation functions. By measuring the distance between the drone and the ground or buildings, combined with other positioning technologies (such as GPS), precise three-dimensional positioning and flight trajectory control can be achieved.
Ultrasonic sensors have a wide range of applications in drone technology. They provide accurate distance information by measuring distances and detecting obstacles, helping drones avoid collisions, achieve precise positioning and altitude measurement, and provide environmental awareness capabilities to ensure flight safety and stability.
