OleaVision360™️ Sensor for Drones

First Intelligent Hemispherical Field-of-View Drone Guidance System

UAV Sensors OleaVision360

OleaVision360™ UAV Sensor System, a patent-pending guidance system, for use on drones and other autonomous applications.

Available in Q4 2019 – Patent Pending # 62860509

Today's UAVs use onboard computer systems with the assistance of GPS to navigate a path of GPS waypoints to reach their destination. However, most drones are blind to their surroundings due to lack of situational awareness in outdoor applications. Similarly, to date, drones have been unable to maneuver in buildings where GPS is denied.


Outstanding Situational Awareness 

OleaVision360™ addresses these issues and more. It is an innovative sensor that can continuously scan the drone's surroundings and the terrain below using only one ultra-light weight sensor housed in a 100 mm (4-inch square) device. OleaVision360™ provides outstanding situational awareness with a hemispherical field of view (front, back, sides, below and/or above) without the use of rotors or beam-forming technologies. This single, low-cost obstacle avoidance sensor allows the drone to fly around obstacles in front or behind it with one-centimeter accuracy and a detection range of 20 meters (65 feet).

Equipped with OleaVision360™ UAV Technology, a drone can accurately sense the terrain below it, offering true terrain following and precision landing assistance without compromising effectiveness. Thanks to Olea's proprietary Life Presence Detection technology, OleaVision360™ can discriminate between animate and in-animate objects.

When used for guidance systems, OleaVision360™ technology provides a substantial advancement in capability for autonomous applications in flight, robotic, industrial and automotive applications.

Commercial and Industrial Applications

The OleaVision360™ solution is especially significant for remote inspections in the mining, construction, engineering, agriculture and environmental industries when needing to view from a specific distance or height in order to avoid compromising the existing equipment and sensors already integrated in a drone. Additionally, OleaVision360TM is robust enough to function in harsh or challenging environments including dust, rain, snow and in total darkness without the assistance of any lighting.
