DJI Manifold

Canonical's Ubuntu operating system serves as the "brains" for DJI Manifold, a new, high-performance embedded computer for drones that reduces processing time and optimizes real-time data analysis. Utilizing DJI's Onboard SDK, the Manifold is a user-friendly system that enables developers to create more powerful professional applications that leverage aerial and ground technologies to solve complex problems. Fully compatible with DJI's Matrice 100 drone, the Manifold is also compatible with third-party sensors and enables developers to connect a wide variety of onboard devices, such as infrared cameras, atmospheric research devices and geographical surveying equipment. Because the Manifold computer both collects and analyzes data in the air, it provides an efficient solution for developers in need of time-sensitive information. Relevant tech specs include Ubuntu 14.04 LTS version, quad-core ARM Cortex A-15 processor, NVIDIA Kepler-based GPU and support for CUDA, OpenCV and ROS.
