The NestGen 2023 virtual summit is set for Thursday, Feb. 23. And if you reserve your tickets this week, you can tune in for free.
This year’s NestGen 2023 virtual summit is shaping up to be one worth participating in for one big reason: DJI is both the title sponsor and the keynote presenter. During DJI’s keynote, the company is set to reveal details about its vision for the next generation of autonomous drone operations, the future of visual data acquisition and its role in driving the global adoption of drone docks.
DJI in March 2022 released its DJI Dock, which is a 90 kg autonomous docking and recharging station. It’s an epic, smart box that can charge the DJI M30 series of drones, and then automatically send the drone off into the skies, as programmed through FlightHub 2. The Dock has a climate-controlled interior, is rated at IP55 and the core internal components are IP67, and it’s waterproof and dustproof even when it is open.
Especially for enterprise operations, systems like DJI Dock are set to be the next step in pushing autonomy even further — and that’s largely set to be a big focus of this virtual conference
