Intel Falcon 8+ System is its first commercial drone

Chipzilla has been flat out developing software for the consumer drones and now is set to release a few drones of its own.

Today, at the 2016 INTERGEO drone conference in Hamburg, Germany, Intel is showing off its Falcon 8+ for North American markets. This system includes the Intel Falcon 8+ UAV, Intel Cockpit for ground control, as well as the Intel Powerpack to power the UAV.

With the introduction of  Intel's first branded commercial drone, Chipzilla is claiming to bring in a  new drone standard.

The Falcon 8+ has full electronic system redundancy and automated aerial-sensing solutions with best-in-class onboard sensors. It is also powered with the triple-redundant AscTec Trinity autopilot. The system provides detailed images down to millimeter accuracy and gives valuable structural analysis that helps users detect and prevent further damage to infrastructure.

"Operators will have tremendous opportunities to generate valuable aerial precision data," Intel enthuses.
