New Tools to Spur Drone Development
In addition to supporting professional drone users, DJI is also delivering new tools to those who develop new drone technologies with the introduction of DJI X-Port. A new gimbal attachment for DJI Matrice 200 Series V2 drones, X-Port allows drone hardware developers to quickly integrate their own custom sensors like multispectral cameras and LiDAR sensors. X-Port features built-in communication APIs, DJI SkyPort integration, and a gimbal debugging interface to enable developers to more quickly bring their sensor innovations to market, reducing start to finish development time by up to 40 percent.
Extended Protection for Drone Technology Investments
DJI also unveiled Enterprise Shield Renew service plan extensions that prolong the comprehensive protection offered to DJI’s enterprise products under Enterprise Shield, covering accidental damage due to crashing, water ingress, or signal interference.
