Autel Alpha Drone coming soon to compete with DJI Matrice 30 Thermal
These photos and specs were shared on social media, showing a yet-to-be-released Autel Alpha drone which would offer direct competition to the DJI Matrice 30 Thermal. The photos were reportedly taking during the Autel Robotics Global Partner Summit in in Huizhou, China.
Looking closer at the Autel Alpha enterprise drone from Autel Robotics we can see four arms that fold out, large props, a body shape and color that resembles the DJI Matrice 30T. Keep in mind that this might be a pre-production model. It would be nice to see the Autel Alpha enterprise drone in the typical orange Autel color.
On the top of the drone we see an obstacle avoidance sensor and possible an LED beacon. We also see four inserts indicating that various accessories can be mounted on the quadcopter.
At the front of the enterprise drone we see two obstacle avoidance sensors and a large gimbal and camera setup. We listed all the specs of the Autel Alpha drone below.
The two rounded corners at the back of the drone are likely to house the two rearward-facing obstacle avoidance sensors.
While we don't have any official information about the drone yet, one of the photos showed a spec sheet with the following information about the new Autel Alpha.
