Sunflower Labs - Home Awareness System

The challenge & the solution

Despite a fully operating system, there are external factors influencing the performance. Gusty winds, in particular, can spoil easily a precise landing. The standard specs for drone landings of 5-meter accuracy were not good enough to enable their solution – even in favorable conditions. Sunflower was aiming for a drone that could operate 99 percent of the time. 

“What we were looking for was a seamless weather-proof solution, as the landing is the most critical element of the whole system. The ZED-F9P’s RTK setup, which relies on one GNSS receiver in the drone and another in the Hive, made it possible to achieve GPS accuracies down to the centimeter level, allowing the drone to get close enough to its landing station for the precision landing guidance to kick in. Also, the RTK in the Hive base station and the drone and the multiband offered faster convergence times which was the decisive factor for us to use u‑blox modules” says Nicolas de Palézieux, Head of Robotics at Sunflower Labs.

No one can change the weather, not even engineers. But thanks to the expertise of the Sunflower Labs’ team and the performance of the ZED-F9P and its multiband RTK technology, the Bee has been able to operate in virtually all weather conditions with the exception of extreme storms and hurricanes. What is clear is that Sunflower Labs has a flying future ahead, security drones are indeed on the way, and Sunflower Labs wants to be at the forefront of both the consumer and commercial markets.
