Leti Will Demonstrate First 3D Anti-Crash Solution for Embedding in Drones: Fitted on a Mass-Market Microcontroller, 360Fusion Software Technology Detects any Dynamic Obstacle and Helps Guide Drones Away from Collisions

Grenoble, France | Posted on December 15th, 2017

Leti’s 360Fusion software, in combination with miniaturized sensors, collects, analyzes and transforms millions of incoming 3D distance data items into relevant, actionable information.

This technology provides consumers and innovative companies with a reliable and affordable integrated anti-crash system. It also ensures safe navigation and enables prompt action in civil-security applications and ensures both fast response and maximum performance for drones in defense uses.

“360Fusion is a flexible solution that is compatible with all types of sensors and that can leverage data from the best of them,” said Marie-Sophie Masselot, Leti industrial partnership manager. “Fitted on a low-cost microcontroller, this technology can be embedded in drones to detect any dynamic obstacle and guide the drone away from a collision.”

Features of 360Fusion include:
The first obstacle-avoidance algorithm in a dynamic environment based on cutting-edge, laser sensor technology
Ultra-compact and miniaturized design that fits into a tiny, mass-market microcontroller
10x cheaper than comparable systems
A highly integrated perception system that weighs less than 40 grams
Seamless integration in existing drone technologies
In its continuing work on the prototype, Leti will equip a fleet of drones with this technology to show they detect and avoid nearby drones, fit miniaturized radar sensors on the fleet, enable detours to safe routs when obstacles are detected and enable autonomous flight.

See demonstrations by Leti, List and Liten (institutes of CEA Tech) at the CEA Tech Village, booth 50653 in Eureka Park.
