Southampton based robotics company Motion-Robotics Ltd will be demonstrating their new non-cooperative aircraft detection system for autonomous drones. The event will be held at Milton Keynes stadium and hosted by UK innovation agency Catapult connected places. Formerly known as the Future Cities Catapult and also the Transport Systems Catapult. The Connected Places Catapult is the British government’s innovation agency for the transport industry and autonomous vehicles.
On the 14th of march at MK stadium from 10am to 3pm, automated solutions from the UK’s leading engineering teams will be all in the same building. Receiving presentations from government and private sectors of transport discussing the future of transportation and solutions to key tasks. The event will be concluded by live demonstrations in the stadium from demonstrators such as Motion-Robotics Ltd.
Motion-Robotics Ltd will be showcasing our VISIOPHONIC module which can detect transponderless proximate aerial craft and obstacles in the vicinity of our drones. Our unique solution utilises a joint vision and audio model to produce highly confident obstacle detections in varied environments. Moreover, our distinct mechanical system combines a wide angle and telephoto camera to find potential obstacles at greater distances.
Statement from CEO, Dr Dennis Majoe on the VISIOPHONIC system
VISOPHONIC integrates state of the art robotics, combining hardware and artificial intelligence resulting in a system that can operate in a wide range of weather conditions, identifying a range of typical transponder free craft. Listening and seeing are basic instincts when humans scout for an intruder. VISIOPHONIC combines these senses to form a robust detection system.
