Drone autopilot and video streaming in one device

Edge has an integrated HDMI input and video compression engine allowing it to capture Full HD video from an onboard camera. Stream is delivered to the GCS over a long range 5.8 GHz Wi-Fi link.

1 Connect camera and Wi-Fi module to EdgeConnect a micro-HDMI cable from your camera to HDMI port on Edge. Plug in Wi-Fi using the supplied micro-USB cable.

2 Connect laptop to Edge via external Wi-FiPlug the second supplied Wi-Fi module into your computer. Connect to the network called «edge».

3 Open QGroundControl and start streamingEdge can also work with other MAVLink-capable GCS like Mission Planner, APM Planner or MAVProxy. Video is supported only in QGC.

Works seamlessly with QGroundControl

Emlid developed a special version of the app to make streaming as easy as possible. Firmware updates, vehicle configuration, video control and mission planning – everything in one application. Simply connect your device to Edge Wi-Fi network – telemetry and video from the camera will appear on the screen.

To get special version of QGroundControl visit Edge documentation.

Powered by ArduPilot — the best open-source autopilot

ArduPilot supports MAVLink protocol, sophisticated flight control algorithms and various flight modes. Controls any vehicle: copter, heli, plane, sub, rover and boat.

Waypoint navigationEdge will guide the drone on a predefined mission from takeoff to landing without operator intervention.

Mission controlDuring the flight system status is constantly monitored and delivered via telemetry to the ground control station.

Return to landingCustom triggers can be set to activate return to landing in cases such as low battery, telemetry link loss or other inflight events.

Payload controlEdge can take control of multiple payloads: camera gimbal, retractable landing gear, parachute, crop sprayers and others.

Everything needed for streaming in one kit

The only thing you need to get separately is an HDMI cable specifically for your camera.

EdgeAdvanced drone controller with HDMI video input and 5.8 GHz data link.

UAVCAN GNSSExternal sensing unit packed with multi-GNSS receiver, dual magnetometers and high-precision barometer. Sensor measurements are transferred to the drone controller over an industrial grade CAN bus using UAVCAN protocol.

Power module with Hall sensorReliably supplies Edge system with power and provides current and voltage measurement. Supports batteries up to 12S and current sensing up to 200 A (with upgraded connectors and wires). Two power modules can be used simultaneously for a redundant setup.

2x long range 5.8 GHz Wi-Fi modulesFull HD video and telemetry link on a distance up to 2 kilometers. 5.8 GHz frequency band allows to use standard RC 2.4 GHz equipment with Edge without interference.

Dual-processor architecture

ARM Cortex-A53 64-bit quad-core CPUFull-fledged Linux system with plenty of resources handles general tasks, as well as networking and media.
ARM Cortex-M3 co-processorRuns real-time operating system for time sensitive tasks such as PWM output for motor control and RC signal decoding.

Temperature-stabilized dual IMU

Integrated heating maintains constant temperature of IMU and barometer to ensure stable operation in cold climate. In hot weather the aluminum body efficiently dissipates heat from the CPU.

Thin and sleek

Edge comes in a low-profile case with side-oriented connectors and can easily fit even in very compact drones.

Simple mounting

Threaded M2 mounting holes on the bottom offer a convenient
and sturdy attachment to the frame.
