Cambridge Pixel VSD Used in Police-Supported Project Testing Vision-Based Detect & Avoid for BVLOS Operations and Classification of Aerial Objects

by DRONELIFE Staff Writer Ian M. Crosby

Sensor processing and display solution developer Cambridge Pixel had joined a consortium with Vizgard and Gibson Robotics to combine the capabilities of each company for a final project demonstration earlier this month, at the Edinburgh Royal Observatory. The project, funded by a DASA Security Rapid Impact Open Call, with support from two UK police departments, set out to explore the use of vision-based 360° Detect and Avoid capabilities for BVLOS drone operations. The project utilized Vizgard’s…
