Built with an ARM Cortex A-15 processor, a quad-core, and a GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) based on Nvidia’s Kepler architecture, the Manifold gives developers the opportunity to give drones some common sense and intuition. Basically, developers can create apps to give drones more autonomy while flying hundreds of feet over the heads of their operators. The Kepler GPU gives software engineers the horsepower needed to create new artificial intelligence software such as deep learning and vision, according to DJI. And…
