The Autel EVO MAX series are advanced autonomous drones. Autel's Autonomy Engine evaluates complex environments to create real-time 3D flight paths for unparalleled obstacle avoidance. The Autel EVO MAX series not only realizes 720° omnidirectional obstacle avoidance, but also can fly safely at night.
How does the drone realize obstacle avoidance at night?
Most drones mainly rely on visual sensors to achieve obstacle avoidance, but at night, the imaging capabilities of drones will be greatly weakened, and the obstacle avoidance effect will also be greatly reduced at this time. In order to enable the drone to fly better at night and effectively avoid obstacles at night, some technologies need to be added to improve the performance of the drone body. For example, Lidar technology, ultrasonic sensors, and enhanced control algorithms.
Does the EVO Max series support obstacle avoidance at night?
The EVO Max series can support obstacle avoidance at night, because the EVO Max series drones are the only commercial drones that combine traditional binocular vision systems with millimeter-wave radar technology, three-way obstacle avoidance sensors, EVO MAX The series of drones can perceive objects as small as 0.5 inches, and even at night, they can achieve effective obstacle avoidance without relying on the visual system.
Obstacle Avoidance Capabilities of the MAX Series
Visual perception system
Front, back, left, right, up and down: 0.2m-50m
Millimeter wave radar
Upper: 0.15-20 meters
Down: 0.1-120 meters
Front and rear: 0.25-30 meters (standard), 0.5-60 meters (Ludicrous)
The powerful obstacle avoidance ability of the EVO Max series and the learning ability of Autel Autonomy enable it to eliminate blind spots and operate in low light or rainy conditions. Therefore, the EVO Max series also supports water surface obstacle avoidance.
Tips for flying at night
- First, you need to be familiar with the surrounding environment of the flight.
- The second point: Take off and land in an open place to reduce adverse factors.
- The third point: don't let your eyes leave the map of the flight APP.
