DroneBase unveils augmented reality platform for UAV pilots

  • The DroneBase AirCraft platform allows pilots to build structures in the sky with GPS-based augmented reality.
  • California startup DroneBase is a leading platform connecting drone pilots with work and potential clients.
  • Any building platform transforming the sky into an open canvas has plenty of creative potential,  particularly when AirCraft allows for more than one pilot to collaborate on the same project.
  • “AirCraft gives pilots of all skill levels new reasons to fly their drones,” said Dan Burton, Founder and CEO, DroneBase.
  • Pilots can use our AR technology to create giant works of art or a drone racecourse or more practical commercial applications like rendering a CAD model at a construction site or evaluating a post-disaster insurance claim.”

The DroneBase AirCraft platform allows pilots to build structures in the sky with GPS-based augmented reality. It’s expected to be used for pilot training, among other things. 

The ability to overlay a virtual image onto our view of the real world has enormous potential. At least that’s what industry reports relating to the insurance, logistics and retail sectors have stated – but plenty of businesses are still uncertain over the commercial future of augmented reality (AR). Finding a practical use for such a specific technology isn’t easy.

California startup DroneBase is a leading platform connecting drone pilots with work and potential clients. It has an active community of professional pilots, including plenty who are looking to make the transition from being a hobbyist into paid missions. As such, DroneBase is in an ideal position to test out new technologies and experiment with AR.

The AirCraft platform adds a new element to the standard DroneBase application. With it, pilots are able to build three-dimensional structures in the sky using colored blocks.

Any building platform transforming the sky into an open canvas has plenty of creative potential,  particularly when AirCraft allows for more than one pilot to collaborate on the same project.

Applications range from aerial works of art to virtual race tracks and pilot training. The latter may be of most interest to enterprises and individuals. It’s easy to see how practising…
