Qualcomm has unveiled a prototype drone based on the previously announced Flight RB5 5G processing platform, providing high artificial intelligence capabilities and technologies.
The Flight RB5 5G platform features a QRB5165 processor, Kryo 585, and Adreno 650 GPU, and is based on the Snapdragon 865 chipset we saw two years ago with leading smartphones in the market.
The Qualcomm drone carries the company’s Spectra 480 sensor, which comes with a resolution of 200 megapixels, and can capture 8K video clips at 30 frames per second, and 4K video at 120 frames per second, with support for HDR technology.
The aircraft provides a combination of artificial intelligence, neural processing, and computer vision technologies. Qualcomm will provide these technologies to companies wishing to use its platform to develop their own aircraft.
Artificial intelligence and computer vision technologies help the plane to obtain and analyze appropriate snapshots, and help the plane to avoid collisions during flight, in addition to avoiding any sudden accidents that could occur by analyzing and analyzing sensor data to know the danger surrounding the plane in full and 360 degrees.
The platform will certainly support the fifth generation technologies on mmWave and sub-6 GHz networks, and it will also support WiFi 6 technology, as well as a technology that helps transfer data from one aircraft to another directly over the communication networks.
