DJI has just announced a new collaboration agreement, this time it has been with Epson and the objective of it is nothing less than to improve the user experience of flying with drones thanks to the use of augmented reality technology, a field where Epson already has a fairly mature and advanced project such as glasses Mover. On this occasion and to give a new push, the company has the help of DJI to exploit the power of augmented reality glasses.
One of the most important points of this joint project lies in the need to optimize the DJI GO app as much as possible, which today is used to work with the Chinese drones of the Inspire, Matrice and Phantom ranges. Thanks to this, the application will be able to work together with the new and promising Epson Moverio BT-300 glasses. As a detail, tell you that these glasses, according to their managers, are expected to hit the market before the end of this year.
DJI and Epson join forces to achieve a strategic move that may very soon pay off
Thanks to the union of these glasses with the use of DJI drones, the user will be able to enjoy a much more intense flight seeing in first person and in real time everything that the drone itself sees while maintaining widow contact with the drone itself. The symbiosis between the app and the BT-300 could be total, or at least for commercial purposes, since the glasses can be purchased on the website of the Chinese drone manufacturer while the DJI GO app can be downloaded on the application platform that Epson has created for the Moverio.
This strategic move on the part of both companies could bear fruit, especially as a result of the new rules on drones that the FAA has recently published in the US. In this context, drones can be used for a multitude of applications related to photography and aerial video recording, being applicable to sectors such as agriculture, security or the filming of cinematographic works, among others.
