The world’s most advanced autonomous device, Skydio R1, can now be controlled from Apple Watch

Skydio, the maker of the self-flying Skydio R1, is continuing to push the boundaries of what autonomy can do, providing consumers with the easiest and most fun
drone experience available today. Now Skydio is building on that autonomy capability to deliver an entirely new way of controlling this self-flying camera with the introduction of the Skydio Apple Watch app, which allows you to completely direct R1 from your wrist. This allows you to stay in the moment and in the shot — not stuck piloting from the sidelines.

Additionally, starting today Skydio R1 will be available in select Apple stores.

“Full autonomy is the key to making drones accessible and practical for everyday use,” says Adam Bry,CEO, and co-founder of Skydio. “With our Apple Watch app, users have the full power of Cinematic Skills, like Dronie, Rocket, and Orbit, enabling incredible capture possibilities right on their wrist.”

The Skydio Apple Watch app is an example of how Skydio has made the experience of controlling a flying camera far simpler by building atop its foundation of autonomy. With its easy-to-use design, the watch app gives quick access to key R1 controls. This makes it easy to get the shot you want when you can’t or don’t want to be accessing your phone.

The Skydio Apple Watch app features include:

● Select a subject to follow by picking from thumbnails of everyone R1 sees
● Use the Digital Crown to rotate R1
● Change between cinematic Skills
● Stop and return to phone

Skydio’s R1 is available for purchase to capture your everyday adventures at www.skydio.com, www.apple.com as well as select Apple stores in the USA and Canada for $1999 USD.

FLIR Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLIR) today announced the DroneSense–FLIR Edition, a drone flight management software platform designed for public safety applications. FLIR announced a strategic investment in DroneSense, an Austin, Texas-based unmanned aircraft system (UAS) software platform maker, in April 2018 and this is the first product under that collaboration. DroneSense-FLIR Edition is the only software platform to combine thermal and visual imaging processing with flight data planning and management capabilities across public safety organizations to help improve incident response.

DroneSense-FLIR Edition streams FLIR thermal sensor data directly into the software, making it a single-source, fully-integrated software platform for drones used in incident response applications such as fires, floods missing person search and rescue, disaster damage assessment and more. It includes features such as autonomous flight control, live video streaming, both on-scene and off-site, and drone asset and compliance management capabilities. The platform is hosted on a secure government cloud server and enables real-time data interpretation for a variety of drones and use cases.
The DroneSense-FLIR Edition supports the DJI Zenmuse XT2 and any DJI drone-based thermal payloads offering Thermal by FLIR® with feature functionality including visual, thermal, picture-in-picture, side-by-side imagery, and robust telemetry feature set. It may be connected via Wi-Fi or cellular networks with multiple feed streaming capabilities or used as a stand-alone, independent communications remote ad-hoc network with automatic logging and syncing of all flight data.

“Drones are a vital tool in various incident response scenarios, and the addition of FLIR thermal sensor data provides a powerful asset to first responders,” said Frank Pennisi, President of the Industrial Business Unit at FLIR. “The use of FLIR thermal technology on drones has earned tremendous interest by public safety organizations both due to their relatively low cost for an airborne surveillance system and rapid deployment capabilities. Now through our partnership withDroneSense, first responders can stream thermal data into DroneSense’s flight control software to transform incident response management.”

FLIR and DroneSense will demonstrate DroneSense–FLIR Edition at Firehouse Expo 2018 from October 16-20 in Nashville, Tennessee at the FLIR booth #1224. The software will be available for purchase through U.S. authorized distributors beginning October 18. For more information, please visit www.flir.com/dronesense.
