• AECAS 100

     

     

    The AECAS collision avoidance systems are electronic units which, when integrated with an obstacle detection sensor and a flight management unit, prevent rotary wing and multirotor vehicles of colliding.

     

     

    The AECAS100 provides vehicles with Emergency Distance Control (EDC): if the vehicle approaches an obstacle such that the user-calibrated minimum distance is not respected, the AECAS100 will automatically push the vehicle away from the obstacle. This capability ensures that you never get close enough to obstacles to cause a collision. The AECAS 100 works seamlessly with some sensors (see Support/Sensors) and via a standard interface able to receive pre-processed information from any other obstacle detection sensor.

    All AECAS systems feature low-power electronics in a lightweight anodized aluminium case.

     

     

    Note: You will need to update your Autopilot code in order to receive and implement the corrections provided by the AECAS unit.
