Drone autopilot and video streaming in one device

The Emlid Edge is an advanced flight controller with HDMI video input and 5.8 GHz data link which allows full HD video streaming and telemetry up to 2 km. Dual temperature-controlled IMUs, external UAVCAN GNSS module and a wide range power module based on Hall sensor.


Drone autopilot and video streaming in one device

There is no more need for a separate video transmission system. 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.

Dual-processor architecture

ARM Cortex-A53 64-bit quad-core CPU- Full-fledged Linux system with plenty of resources handles general tasks, as well as networking and media.

ARM Cortex-M3 co-processor- Runs 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.

Easily customizable

Edge is built to be flexible. No matter if you’re assembling a copter as a hobby or building commercial drones — Edge is a perfect platform for any project.

Powered by the best open-source autopilot

Edge runs Ardupilot — the most fully-featured and robust autopilot software available. It supports MAVLink protocol, sophisticated flight control algorithms and various flight modes. The autopilot can control any vehicle: copter, heli, plane, sub, rover and boat.

Waypoint navigation

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

Mission control

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

Return to landing

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

Payload control

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