Landing precisely where you want it to land is important in confined spaces or when you require a landing platform (for example to provide stable ground or to connect to an automated charging pad, etc.). The following video shows the very first precision landing test with AirRails on a “landing pad” setup using an ultra wide band (UWB) positioning system.
UWB performs well outdoors and is not affected by weather conditions. The setup in the video is a 2 by 2 meter landing platform featuring 1 anchor on each corner to triangulate the device (tag) attached to the drone. The drone is able to consistently navigate to the same spot within 10cm. Support for AirRails powered VTOLs and AirRails GCS coming soon! Please contact us for more information.
