The TS150 Tethered Drone, developed by Embention, can be used for many applications including security, video surveillance and defence functions. In this type of situation, it is very important that the control tasks of both the UAV and the camera are simple. One of the ways to simplify the work is with a simplified user interface.

TS150 App

At Embention we have developed the TS150 App. It is a user interface designed exclusively to maximize the performance of our Tethered Drone TS150 in its different applications.

New user interface features

The main feature of the TS150 App is that it prioritizes streaming video in full-screen mode. With this, the operator is watching video streaming while he is carrying out camera operation and drone control at the same time and on the same screen. In addition, the app is designed to operate intuitively and facilitate the operation for less experienced users.

This new user interface for drone control provides a quick view of all the information from the UAV that the user needs to operate. Also, most behaviours have been automated to simplify operator work.

In the camera control, the TS150 App allows video recording and image capture during the mission. In addition, camera changes and objective tracking can be easily made with a single click.  It is also possible to manage the zoom with the zoom in and zoom out buttons, or with some preset zoom positions.

Camera Control:

  • Video streaming in full screen.
  • Video recording and real-time image capture.
  • Object tracking.
  • Zoom.
  • Autonomous pointing.
  • Tilt and Yaw commands.

UAV Control:

  • Drone status information on the screen.
  • Two buttons that direct all UAV states.
  • Height control.
  • Landing point configuration before and during the flight.

Advantages

The design of the TS150 App as a Web application brings great advantages to the system. The main advantage is the ability that multiple users can access and operate at the same time. To do this, the app synchronizes and displays the same information among all connected users.

Another advantage of being a Web app is that it is not necessary for the user to install any program. In this way, the client can choose if the same operator has to manage all the systems or define different operating roles to perform them from different devices.

More advantages:

  • Simple and intuitive interface.
  • Real-time camera operation.
  • Video streaming without cuts.
  • UAV and camera control on the same screen.
  • Compatible with tablets.
  • Multiple devices.
  • Different operating roles.

The TS150 App offers many facilities to operate the drone. It offers a great advantage in situations where the most important thing is security.
