Drone Volt has developed an app to control its Hercules drone collection.
The tool, called DV Control, is designed to allow pilots to autonomously complete missions. It features remote control and smartphone support, and enables multiple smartphones and screens to be connected together via WiFi.
All required flight information, such as altitude, speed, distance, voltage, time, and GPS position, is visible in real time on a dual screen.
The app also displays a flight departure checklist to remind the user of the required procedures for safety.
The flight plan can be created and monitored through the application itself:
Waypoints can be implemented in the flight plan, as well as any required actions at these waypoints, such as recording, rotations, and gimbal orientation.
Aerial Photogrammetry for aerial mapping and 3D modelling of buildings and terrain or georeferenced orthoplans.
Rally Points can be included for longer missions. The drone will land at these rally points for battery replacement, or simply to complete a mission without returning to the starting point.
"Our priorities during the development of this new DV Control mobile application was efficiency and user-friendliness," said Olivier Gualdoni, chairman and CEO of Drone Volt. "We want to offer pilots the opportunity to operate their Hercules products easily during their increasingly complex professional flight missions."
