Cape aerial Telepresence ™
Cape Aerial Telepresence™
Cape Aerial Telepresence™ is a commercial drone software platform which allows customers to effectively, safely, and easily control a drone anywhere in the world in real-time. Our drone software empowers customers to utilize commercial drones to their fullest extent completely in-house, without needing to rely on third parties for drone operation.
Cape Cloud Data Management
The Cape Cloud Data Management (CCDM) system provides a single, secure system to organize drone flight data for use by authorized users. Cape customers have a private portal to keep photo/video data, drone locations, flight plans, historical flight data, users, and other critical information secure while at the same time making them accessible from anywhere for authorized users.
What's Required for remote drone control?
We currently work with DJI Drones (e.g Mavic Pro, Inspire 1 & 2, Matrice 200, 210, 600)
iPad Pro w/Cape App and internet
This iPad is on-site with the drone, connected to the drone's remote control transmitter.
Used by the teleoperator to control the drone through the internet, which can be done from anywhere in the world.
Cape Cloud and apps
We provide our customers with a private cloud portal and additional mobile apps, including Cape Spectator, for customers interested in live-stream viewing from a mobile device.
How it works
Send a field operative on-site with a drone and iPad. Using the Cape app, create a geofence, turn on the drone, and verify preflight checklist. The drone is now ready to be connected by the teleoperator.
2. CONNECT, FLY, SPECTATE
Once connected, the teleoperator initiates drone flight and is able to effectively control the drone remotely using a simple and intuitive interface. Advanced automated flight features pilot the drone to pre-defined locations or routes. Geofences aid in avoiding hazards and makes it impossible for the operator to crash the drone.
Need to livestream to your team? Cape Spectator is also made available for other interested parties, and is viewable from both the computer and mobile devices.
3. Manage Data, Users, Drones
Each Cape customer has their own private portal with the Cape Cloud Data Management (CCDM) system. The CCDM system provides the tools to create, archive, and manage everything you need for your operation.
Drones - Manage drone inventory, location, status, capabilities, and historical data.
Flight Plans - Create unlimited flight plans and view, modify, or archive flight plan details. Cape drone software allows you to make the drone flight plan prior to flight.
Flight Data - telemetry data and flight history provide insights into how drones are being used for your business and by which users, aiding in planning of maintenance, fleet expansion, locations, and staffing.
Drone Videos & Photos - Cape allows live stream video of drone flight through the camera. Sensor data stored in the cloud can also be recorded for future viewing in HD quality.
4. Always Secure
With the CCDM and Cape app, provide secure portal access for you and your team. Authorize member access, administer privileges and provide encrypted streams to enable your team with a secure and safe operation.
Frequently Asked Questions
1. Does Cape operate Cape Aerial Telepresence as a service?
No, Cape Aerial Telepresence™ is a software platform. We are more than happy to help get customers up and running, but after that they are able to operate our software independently. To learn more about our services please visit our Services Overview page or please contact us.
2. Is it really impossible for the teleoperator to crash the drone?
As long as the on-site personnel has set up a geofence properly, including marking any obstacles inside the fence, then yes, it's impossible for the teleoperator to crash!
3. If I'm on the other side of the world, won't there be too much lag to control the drone?
Nope! Cape's technology establishes an ultra low latency, encrypted peer-to-peer connection between the teleoperator and drone over the Internet. Even if you are on the other side of the world, you can expect to experience under a second of lag. We've also designed a control scheme to minimize felt latency.
4. Which drones does your platform work with?
Cape drone software currently works with nearly all DJI drones.
