Obstacle Avoidance is the autonomous task of maneuvering around static objects such as buildings, mountains, and trees.
With AEF software add-on Skydio 2 Enterprise App allows closer flight for navigation through tight spaces and up-close inspection of detailed assets with obstacle avoidance modes:
Standard - 34 inches (86 cm) between your Skydio 2 and any obstacle
Close - 11 inches (28 cm) between your Skydio 2 and any obstacle
Minimal - 4 inches (10 cm) between your Skydio 2 and any obstacle
Disabled - obstacles avoidance is disabled
Obstacle Avoidance speeds:
Standard - top airspeed is 36 mph (58 km/h)
Close, Minimal, or Disabled - top airspeed is 9 mph (14.5 km/h)
To set obstacle avoidance mode:
Step 1 - Select Device settings
Step 2 - Select Drone settings
Step 3 - Select
Flying with Close or Minimal obstacle avoidance settings increases the risk of collision and obstacles such as transparent surfaces and thin wires/branches will be more difficult to detect. Take caution when flying in these modes. Disabling obstacle avoidance to slowly and carefully navigate tight spaces with extreme caution. Turning down Controller throttle, roll, and pitch sensitivity to the lowest setting and proceeding at a max speed of 2 mph (1 m/s).
