World’s Most Precise Auto-Follow Consumer UAV Unveiled at Interdrone

XI'AN, China — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 1, 2016Skye Intelligence, will unveil Orbit - the world’s most precise auto-follow UAV at Interdrone.

The hands-free, social sharing drone will be displayed at the Skye booth (1201) where attendees can experience demonstrations, and see breathtaking images and videos of the Orbit in action.

David Sliwa, North America Director of Sales and Marketing will present a talk on the Future of Social Drone Technology in the Drone Theatre at 3.00pm on September 7th and 3.35pm on September 8th.

Hands-free auto-follow
Orbit possesses three tracking technologies - Global Navigation Satellite System, Synchronous GPS Image Tracking, and automated optical pixel-tracking, which makes it the world’s most precise auto-follow drone.

‘Follow Me’ mode enables hands-free control via a wearable device. ‘Point Lock’ commands the Orbit to hover above a fixed point, while the lens focuses on a preset target with the Image Tracking System. While ‘Climbing’ follows the user as they climb or descend.

Sleek design
The Orbit is lightweight with a glossy black elliptical shell for optimized aerodynamics. Its contoured fuselage features a vivid blue ring light for enhanced visual ground recognition.

HD images and videos
A 16mp gimbaled lens housed in the nose shoots stunning stills, while a 1080p camera streams high-quality HD images from heights of 200-metres and at speeds of up to 33-mph.

Orbit has 28-minute battery life - one of the longest flight times for a drone in this category.
