Autel EVO 2 drone series released at CES 2020

Evolve with the EVO. After countless hours of diligent planning and rigorous testing, Autel Robotics is pleased to present EVO 2 Series. This series is the most powerful and advanced foldable drone system on the planet.

The EVO 2 Series features the longest battery life of any foldable drone (up to 40-minutes of flight time). With a top speed of 45mph and up to 9km range, you can now go further, faster. EVO 2 presents an all new sensor and storage package and omni-directional obstacle avoidance. We’re talking 12 computer vision sensors, 2 sonar sensors, and 2 LED landing lights, working together to create an aircraft with the best obstacle avoidance in the industry. EVO 2 offers failsafe features letting you know when the battery is low and when it’s time to return to home. We’ve also added 8GB of internal storage as well as the ability to accept SD cards up to 256GB. Follow subjects autonomously around obstacles at high speeds using Autel’s patented Dynamic Track 2.0™ and watch as AI technology creates smart flight paths in real time. Dual-core powered object detection recognizes up to 64 subjects at once including people, vehicles, and animals.
