DJI Matrice 100 Features

DJI Matrice 100 features

Expansion bays:

We can add components, customize the payload, and fly with any devices we wish by the additional expansion bays. By this drone, we can gather data while completing multiple jobs from the bird’s point of view. By the hardware expansion bays, Matrice 100 can be configured to carry 1 kg.

Ready To Fly:

The Matrice 100 DJI is not a kit like most commercial offering drones. The company developed this product in such a way that it is ready to fly Drone. This Quadcopter is fully integrated operating platforms, complete with a flight controller, flexible cargo bays, GPS, and a rechargeable battery.

SDKs:

DJI developed fully programmable with two new robust software development kits to customize their UAVs for commercial purposes.

Mobile App SDK:

This SDK in DJI matrice 100 makes developers easy to build mobile apps for specific industries, tasks, and applications. Autopilot Phantom, Pix4D, Drone deploy are the three examples of custom mobile apps for M100.

Onboard API SDK:

By using this API SDK, we can customize our drone to support any particular application or industry. We can create custom flight commands, Autopilot apps, Informatics and Avionics apps by API SDK.

Navigation:

We observe High precision navigation in DJI Matrice 100 by using the vision and ultrasonic sensors. Stereo algorithms provide super-high precision positioning even when flying at high speeds and maintain indoor hover to within centimeters.

Obstacle Detection:

DJI guidance scans the surrounding environment and detects all obstacles, i.e., in 360o. To avoid collisions and perform emergency maneuvers automatically by Guidance.

COM ports:

DJI 100 Matrice has dual parallel CAN ports for connecting other DJI devices. It also offers dual UART ports for connecting third party add-ons.

Battery:

An additional battery compartment is added in DJI Matrice 100. Because of dual battery compartments, we can achieve up to 40 minutes of flight by a second onboard battery.

Remote Control(RC):DJI-M100 RC

The DJI M100 comes with a long range customizable remote controller with an operating range of 1.2 miles. DJI RC has a holder by which we can connect our mobile device and comes with a rechargeable battery by adjustable controls and video outputs.

Mobile App:M100 DJI app

All apps run on our choice of smartphone or tablet. DJI M100 comes with Pilot app which provides video streaming, navigation, and information features out of the box.

Waypoint:

GPS in M100 DJI helps the drone to set path the drone should fly. The drone can fly to multiple points and returns on the same route.

Fewer Vibrations:

The DJI Matrice 100 is a rigid, stable system and has 50% fewer vibrations because of lightweight carbon fiber. Elimination of feedback from the powerful motors is done by the DJIs new soft vibration-absorbing material, and Critical components are kept stable and allow unprecedented accuracy.

Landing pads:

Installation and replacement of these landing pads give the DJI matrice 100 protective landing. They also protect our system and eliminate unintentional lifting off the ground.

Enhanced GPS:

This Enhanced GPS helps to track our drone accurately in real time. Even in faster satellite acquisition, we can acquire an accurate position holding and flight planning.

DJI LightBridge:

Matrice 100 is stable and responsive because of the new N1 flight controller and increase flight range to 1.2miles. This drone feature also helps us to transmit data to us and brings live HD view. The testing of this drone is performed in open areas so the range may vary on local regulations.

Ground Station:DJI Matrice 100 Review

Capabilities of Matrice 100 are beyond mobile apps by allowing UgCS. We can connect our M100 to our laptop with UgCS on it and can perform full-fledged desktop mission planning.

Propulsion System:

An upgraded version of DJI E800 electric propulsion system powers your Matrice 100 and keeps it in flight. Four powerful, brushless motors and four lightning-fast Electronic Speed Controllers are integrated into the platform, giving you complete control during flight. With increased strength and payload capacity, you have the flexibility to create the system you need.

Follow Me:

This feature is performed when a GPS signal is strong. We set an object, building or a person as the target and let the drone fly by itself.

Return To Home:

To avoid any crash or damage to drone in low battery conditions we use this feature Return To Home. By this mode, our drone can return safely to home in low battery conditions.
