Augmented reality and drones already fit together like turkey and stuffing, but a new iOS app adds some spice to the combination with a new kind of trajectory automation.
The Vermeer beta app, now available in the app's App Store, provides a 3D map of the intended drone flight area, allowing pilots to see the terrain from different angles. Users can then use the visualization to record the trajectory of the drone.
Once the trajectory is set, users can use the app to set the drone to autopilot so they can focus on the vehicle's camera instead. 19659002] The app is compatible with many of the latest DJI drones, those that support the mobile SDK.
"People are not interested in the drone," said Brian Streem, CEO and Founder in a blog post. "They're interested in the image, both for filmmakers and photographers, real estate agents marketing their homes, and site managers monitoring the progress of their skyscraper."
Streem and his team certainly have the conditions for such persecution. Streem also founded Aerobo, an aerial photography and photography company that has worked on more than 100 television and film productions, including The Greatest Showman True Detective Mr. Robot and several Marvel series on Netflix.
While companies like Epson and Edgybees add Augmented Reality Vermeer uses the technology to guide the pilot Remove the steering wheel and allow them to act as navigator and cameraman before the flight.
In a way, the app serves as a preview of the inevitable future of autonomous vehicles. As augmented reality and self-driving vehicles share DNA in the field of computer vision, the technologies work well together.
This drone is picking up momentum and is both a great insight into next generation transportation and an incredibly powerful new
