PENSAR is one of the world’s first platforms with dual spectrum digital vision that allows real-time analysis of images or data. Infinitely customizable, it can be mounted on professional drone, mobile robot or used as an independent camera.

“PENSAR, developed in AERIALTRONICS’ artificial intelligence laboratory, is one of the world’s first dual spectrum digital vision platforms dedicated to real-time data analysis using a miniaturized NVIDIA® embedded processor with 1.5 teraflops of power. Its computing power, accelerated by the NVIDIA® Jetson™ GPU processor in the NVIDIA® Jetson™ module, enables it to detect, recognize, analyze and classify objects or people in real time. Simultaneous data acquisition and processing allows for immediate decision making.”

The intelligent platform comes with an Ubuntu Linux Open Source operating system that allows you to customize it to suit your needs. PENSAR is compatible with open source libraries such as Google’s Tensor Flow.

It can be used in a wide range of applications and for multiple applications: surveillance, inspection, public security and anti-terrorist operations, search and rescue, etc.

It’s equipped with an optional facial recognition system, object recognition such as license plates, animal recognition and similar tasks.
