Matrice 100 - much more than a quadcopter
“This system from DJI was designed to help developers create new hardware and software applications for aerial technology.”
Global PR Manager, DJI
“The Matrice is a quadcopter whereas the Guidance system is a sense and avoid hardware addition. The combination of these two new tools is a powerful solution for developers to use the DJI SDK as well as hardware integration to create original aerial applications.”
Executive Creative Director, DJI
“This is our Lepton camera and this is again, a high-performance infrared camera. All these cameras can sense temperature differences less than a tenth of a degree. From our perspective as sensor and hammer manufacturers, we view drones as a platform to place sensors in the air.”
Senior VP, Flir Systems
Additional components to customize your drone
Additional expansion bays allow you to add components, customize the payload, and fly with any devices you want. Put cameras, sensors, computing boards, communication tools, and more into the sky, and gather data while completing complex jobs from a birds-eye view. You can also add an additional battery compartment to achieve up to 40 minutes* of flight time. This gives greater power to both your platform and any additional devices or accessories that you wish to fly with. (*Flight times vary based on payload and flight conditions, and the maximum 40 minute flight time tested when hovering with dual TB48D batteries and no additional payload.)
The Matrice 100 also features customizable Mounting and Balancing to achieve perfect balance and an ideal flight experience by sliding the battery and other compartments around the body of your Matrice 100. Put your components exactly where you want them, and get the most out of your system.
Universal Power and Communication Ports enable the user to connect and fly with a range of DJI or third party devices, and transmit data to the ground in real time. The Matrice 100 has dual parallel CAN ports for connecting DJI devices including the GUIDANCE (not included) sensor system and dual parallel UART ports for connecting third party components of your choice. Now it is easy to mount your own equipment and put it into the sky.
The Martice 100 drone has adjustable arm angle for greater torque to match your flight needs, adjusting the arm angle of each of the 4 arms is quick and easy. Achieve increased yaw torque and greater response by tilting the arms to a 3 degree angle.
The new rigid, strong system reduces vibration by 50%. Each of the arms contains DJI’s new soft vibration absorbing material that virtually eliminates feedback from the powerful motors, keeping your critical components stable and allowing unprecedented accuracy.
Innovative Quick Release Landing pads or “feet” are installed at the base of each arm to protect your Matrice 100 when landing. These pads greatly reduce impact, protecting your system and eliminating the chance of your platform unintentionally lifting off of the ground. Also easy and quick to remove for replacement or upgrades.
Dedicated remote controller
Take control of your platform with the customizable, long-range remote controller included with the Matrice 100. With an operating distance of up to 1.2 miles* (2km), a rechargeable battery, fully adjustable controls, and outputs to connect to your mobile device, this is the perfect tool to command your system in the air. (*Maximum range tested in open areas free of interference and may vary depending on local regulations.)
Fly with the feature-rich DJI Pilot app or create your own app with the DJI SDK. See a live view, control your devices, access a real-time map, and more by simply plugging in your tablet or smartphone.
DJI’s new N1 flight controller keeps your Matrice 100 stable and responsive to your commands throughout every flight. Transmitting data to you and bringing a live HD view (when using DJI’s X3 Camera and gimbal), the included DJI Lightbridge increases your flight range to 1.2 miles* (2km). (*Maximum range tested in open areas free of interference and may vary depending on local regulations.)
An upgraded version of the respected DJI E800 electric propulsion system powers your Matrice 100 and keeps it in flight. Four powerful, brushless motors and four lightning fast Electronic Speed Controllers are integrated into the platform, giving you complete control during flight. With increased strength and payload capacity, you have the flexibility to create the system you need.
Avoidance system - for ultimate control
Another innovation of the Matrice M100 is the inclusion of our new avoidance system called Guidance. This incredibly intricate system tracks the area around the Matrice M100 from all sides – down, front, rear, right and left. This means that the Matrice M100 is always aware of its surroundings and will automatically adjust its flight path when closing in on objects or obstructions.
“My team was really excited about working with DJI on this application and supporting their products.”
Senior VP Internet of Things, Intel
“At Fudan University we combined a Matrice 100, a Guidance, DJI SD cable and Intel processor. We used these tools to create something that was a truly original, urban solution. Our system is designed to help city planners identify illegally parked cars.”
Dr Hui Feng
Project Manager, Fudan
“We’re not pilots and you know, being able to easily fly them and not have to think about the flying aspect of it, really think about the camera operation, that’s what’s important to us as an integrator.”
By giving everyone access to key elements of the Matrice M100, we are increasing the opportunity for everyone to explore uncharted territory. And to create dedicated systems of aerial image capture within all industries around the world.
