Technology

The world’s first industrial-grade autonomy software system

Icon
Pilot-less

exynAI™ enables aerial robots to fly without a pilot, identifying and avoiding obstacles intelligently.

Icon
Self Contained

exynAI™ completes missions with all required hardware and intelligence onboard the robot.

Icon
Untethered

ExynAI™ doesn’t need to maintain communications with a base station to operate successfully.

Icon
GPS-Denied

exynAI™ does not rely on existing infrastructure such as GPS to reliably complete a mission.

Real autonomy answers the question…

Where am I?

… without GPS

exynAI™’s simultaneous localization and mapping capabilities include a state estimation pipeline that fuses high-rate inertial measurements with other sources of odometry.

Pairing this capability with robust, real-time optimization techniques enables the system to generate highly accurate maps with best-in-class performance.

Real autonomy answers the question…

Where am I going?

… without a pilot

exynAI™’s planning framework allows the user to command the system via an objective-driven interface that accepts high-level mission-specifications.

A hierarchical planning framework breaks down missions into tasks, tasks into behaviors, and so on. At the lowest level, the system produces optimal trajectories that guide the vehicle to a desired state.

Real autonomy answers the question…

How do I get there?

… without communications

exynAI™’s system leverages multi-resolution, motion planning in tandem with dense 3D mapping to determine safe flight corridors in which the vehicle can travel.

The result is a system that produces optimal trajectories that satisfy vehicle dynamics while ensuring smooth flight.
