Augmented Pixels: Indoor Navigation Platform for Drones

Drones are notoriously difficult to handle indoors: hard to control and prevent crashing into walls or people.

Augmented Pixels has been actively developing technology (including SLAM) to ensure safe flights as well as intuitive and easy navigation using Augmented Reality.

They came up with a platform that significantly reduces accident rates and minimizes the effect of "human factor". Moreover, it is possible to program the drone to fly around and land by itself.

The prospects for this technology include a wide range of use cases (e.g. inspection of premises for security, creation of 360-degree tours, etc.).Augmented Pixels is located in Palo Alto, CA.
