Sky Drone has joined the NVIDIA Inception Accelerator Program to bring real-time AI processing to connected drones that fly beyond visual line of sight.
HONG KONG, 9th DECEMBER 2020 – Sky Drone’s 4G/5G connected drone technology is now leveraging NVIDIA’s global leadership in artificial intelligence processing.
“Leveraging NVIDIA AI processing combined with our collaboration with China Mobile HK on 5G connected drones, we are now ready to handle rapid AI processing of data coming from a drone in mid-air and reacting on it in real-time.” said Boris Boege, CEO of Sky Drone. “This is a game changer for truly useful connected drones flying BVLOS.”
Sky Drone specializes in drone connectivity technology and has been the leader of 4G/LTE connection devices for drones for the past few years. Its recent partnership with Germany’s Droniq (joint venture of German Air Traffic control and Deutsche Telekom) is proof of the importance of connected drones in the public airspace – especially when they are flying beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS). Upgrading that connectivity technology to 5G and using AI to process data in real-time, brings new possibilities to the world of connected drones.
Today, thousands of AI startups worldwide use NVIDIA GPUs to accelerate their solutions and disrupt key markets. Through NVIDIA Inception, Sky Drone has access to unparalleled support, ranging from training through the NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute, to unlimited access to their developer forums, to hardware through their global network of distributors.
NVIDIA Inception is a program that helps startups during critical stages of product development, prototyping and deployment. Every Inception member gets a custom set of ongoing benefits, such as marketing support and technology assistance, which provides startups with the fundamental tools to help them grow.
