SenseFly unveils triple-view capable UAV

By Emily Aasand | October 09, 2014

SenseFly, a Parrot company, recently introduced eXom, a rotary drone that offers a TripleView camera head, five vision sensor and an extra security of automated proximity warnings and shock-absorbent carbon fiber shrouding to protect the aircraft.

According to the company, the eXom’s autopilot-controlled TripleView head allows you to view and record any type of imagery required—HD video, ultra-high resolution stills, thermal data, or all of the above.

The new technology has a head with a 270 degree vertical field of view and is capable of flying without a remote control or piloting skills because of the option to operate the aircraft in either interactive ScreenFly mode or in autonomous mode.

“We are thrilled to announce the eXom and look forward to demonstrating this next-generation platform to Intergeo visitors,” said Jean-Christophe Zufferey, CEO and co-founder of senseFly. “We designed eXom to be unlike any other rotary drone; a fully-integrated imaging platform rather than just a remote-controlled aircraft with cameras attached. This allows users to focus on their work, not on flying.”

senseFly is a Swiss company based in Cheseaux-Lausanne and was founded at the end of 2009. The company develops, assembles and markets autonomous mini-drones and related software solutions for civil professional applications such as accurate mapping of mining sites, quarries, forests, construction sites and crops.

The eXom is one of several drones senseFly makes. Its eBee drone is used for professional mapping and its swinglet cam drone is used for GIS purposes.
