- Why I Joined Skydio: Team, Tech, Timing
I first met Skydio founders Adam, Abe and Matt in 2014 when I was an operating partner at a16z. The secrets they had learned and earned via their research work in Robotics and Autonomy at M.I.T. had crystalized their product vision and fueled their passion to become the world leader in autonomous drones.
- What's New with Skydio 2: Detailed Overview
Check here for all the details on what’s new with Skydio 2’s latest software update which includes extended tracking distance, beacon improvements, case landing, and other minor bug fixes and improvements
- Deep Neural Pilot on Skydio 2
We here at Skydio have been developing and deploying machine learning systems for years due to their ability to scale and improve with data. However, to date our learning systems have only been used for interpreting information about the world; in this post, we present our first machine learning system for actually acting in the world.
- Why Autonomy Matters for Public Safety Drones
"My hands just shake a lot less when I fly.” That was the response from the young police officer and UAS pilot when I asked him to boil down why the Skydio 2 was different than the other drones he flies at work.
- Inside the mind of the Skydio 2
In this post we dive in to the Skydio Autonomy Engine — how the Skydio 2 sees the world and decides how to fly and film — by walking through an example. In this clip, watch how Skydio 2 keeps a cinematic framing of the biker while dodging obstacles at high speeds downhill. To do this, it has to estimate its own motion, build an obstacle map, estimate the biker’s path, and handle the aerodynamics of fast flight, all in real time onboard the drone.
- Becoming Skydio 2 - How it's Made
As our manufacturing line kicks into gear, we’re excited to share a behind-the-scenes look at some of the steps on Skydio 2’s path from a collection of parts through to a fully integrated product delivered to your doorstep.
- Introducing the Skydio 2 Pro Kit and Skydio Premier Support
Armed with the Skydio Autonomy Engine, the Skydio 2 is ready to fly in those environments. But to get it there, airborne, landed, and back home, we had to take care of two things: a rugged package so pilots can manage their gear, and a premier support tier designed to make sure that professionals counting on their Skydio drones can also count on our Skydio support.
- When to Use the Beacon or Controller (or both)?
What is the difference between the Skydio Beacon and Controller? See the different uses for each and how they make using the Skydio drone better. In this post we go through real world examples of when to use the controller or beacon.
- Skydio 2 Dock: Enabling Persistent Autonomous Drone Operations
Today we’re announcing the Skydio 2 Dock — a self contained, weatherproof, charging base station for Skydio 2 that enables truly persistent operations for enterprise applications.
