VOXL is ModalAI’s autonomous computing platform built around the Snapdragon 821. The VOXL architecture combines a single board computer with a depth camera, flight controller and cellular modem to create fully autonomous, connected drones and robots!

PX4 Companion Computer: VOXL-DK (Datasheet) is a light-weight, but powerful companion computer for PX4. It is driven by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821, runs Linux, has tons of I/O and pre-certified WiFi. Watch the demo video and buy here!

Navigation and Obstacle Avoidance: VOXL-DK-MV is designed for quick integration of computer vision based autonomy. It bundles the VOXL-DK and computer vision cameras for depth mapping and visual tracking for GPS-denied navigation. Watch the demo video and buy here!

Cellular Communications: The VOXL-ACC-LTEH-NA (Datasheet) is an add-on that plugs in to the VOXL’s board to board connector. It enables LTE capability for the following North American cellular carriers: Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile. Watch the demo video and buy here!

Flight Controller: The ModalAI Flight Core runs the PX4 flight controller, and is made in the USA. The Flight Core can be paired with VOXL for obstacle avoidance and GPS-denied navigation, or used independently as a standalone flight controller.

The VOXL technology builds on the Qualcomm® Flight Pro™ architecture by adding comprehensive software development support with a build-able Linux kernel, cross-compile SDKs, LTE, time of flight cameras, Docker images for development and more.

ModalAI’s goal is to have a complete, fully-documented, development environment for autonomous aerial and ground vehicles. If you see something missing, please contribute here, or ask for help here
