While only the size of a standard playing card, the Intel® Aero Compute Board is packed with features including:
- Abundant storage capabilities
- Wi-Fi (802.11ac)
- Support for multiple cameras, including the Intel® RealSense™ camera (R200)- part of the optional Intel® Aero Vision Accessory Kit
- Industry-standard interfaces
- Reconfigurable I/O to facilitate connecting to a broad variety of drone hardware subsystems
The compute board ships with open-source Yocto Project* for embedded Linux* systems. It offers sample applications and APIs for flight and vision interfaces to reduce hurdles for developers of sophisticated drone applications.
