In the past few months, Intel has been hard at work in the drone space announcing the first consumer drone, the Yuneec Typhoon H with Intel® RealSense technology for intelligent obstacle navigation, and the Intel Aero Platform, a platform for developers to build their own drones from the ground up.

Intel is also extending our innovation – with our Drone 100 light shows and through enabling a Volocopter with our drone technology. We’ve quickly accelerated our efforts to develop new drone technologies. Although our technology has already touched drone enthusiasts, developers and global businesses, we look to achieve even more.

Intel is focused on continuing to create innovative new technologies and to lead in the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) segment – especially in the commercial space.

In the commercial UAV industry, the AscTec® Falcon 8 drone is available in the market and continues to be the leading platform for this segment. The Falcon 8 offers the best performance and weight-to-payload ratio in the entire market; the highest stability in harsh conditions; easily exchangeable and deeply integrated payloads; best-in-class safety, including unmatched robustness against magnetic field disturbances; high-precision GPS; and one of the world’s largest drone reseller and support networks to properly support your drone business and daily operations.
