Advexure in partnership with Autel Robotics and software partner Pix4D are announcing new bundles for the EVO II series of aircraft to meet the needs of the public safety sector. EVO II Pro and EVO II Dual Rugged Bundles will now include a 1-Year of Pix4Dreact, Pix4D’s 2D fast-mapping software at no extra charge. Also, all Autel EVO II camera models (8K, 6K, Dual) are now compatible with Pix4D for real color mapping.
Pix4Dreact is specifically designed to provide quick and reliable situational awareness to first-responders while in the field. Fast, lightweight, easy-to-use and robust, it can produce high-quality 2-dimensional orthomosaic maps when time is of the essence. It is the perfect software companion to the Autel Evo II, enabling teams on the ground to respond quickly and safely.
“We are very proud to partner with Autel Robotics to bring this simple-to-use yet powerful drone-mappingsolution to first responders”, says Christopher Cressy, Managing Director for Pix4D North America. “The Evo II is an impressive drone platform and ideally suited to public safety missions. It’s light, fast, and easy to operate. Paired with Pix4Dreact and a simple laptop computer, any drone pilot or responder on the ground can generate and share a high-resolution scale map in minutes, anywhere in the world, with or without network connectivity.” Gary DeLuca, Autel Robotics USA’s CEO, adds “At Autel Robotics, we are proud to offer the fastest rapid-deployment aircraft in the industry, and the speed of Pix4Dreact is the ideal complementary application for our aircraft. No other application, and no other aerial product in public safety and construction
industries output actionable data as efficiently, accurately, and with quality orthomosaics as Pix4Dreact partnered with Autel Enterprise.”
Autel EVO II: Pix4D Compatibility
Autel EVO II aircraft are now compatible with most Pix4D software applications such as Pix4Dmapper, Pix4Dreact, Pix4Dcloud, and others.
FAQ: Autel and Pix4Dreact
What settings do I need to use in Autel Explorer to ensure compatibility?
In both Dual and 6K (Pro) cameras, we recommend the highest resolution possible for best results in Pix4Dreact or Pix4DMapper. The EVO II Dual camera should be set to 8000x6000.
Can I import a GeoTIFF into Pix4Dreact for labeling/marking?
Yes, GeoTIFF can be imported using the “Import GeoTIFF” button on the center left side of the screen.
Can I use Pix4DCapture with Autel EVO II?
No. Autel Explorer is the mission planning tool of choice. Please view the included instruction/how-to sheet for programming missions in Autel Explorer.
How fast should I fly for best mapping results?
Ideally mapping missions are flown no faster than 18mph.
Are there any challenging maps where Pix4Dreact may not be optimal?
Pix4Dreact will struggle with creating highly detailed, correctly stitched maps in areas where there are large, sudden shifts in elevation, such as ravines, multi-story buildings in an otherwise flat location, cliffs, etc. This is a challenge for all 2D mapping applications due to the nature of surface depth.
What if I want to upgrade to a Perpetual (I own it) license?
There is an included card that demonstrates the upgrade path to a Perpetual license. The upgrade cost is $600.00 USD, one-time payment. Pix4Dreact will be licensed forever/perpetuity.
Can I use this towards Pix4DMapper?
This included bonus to the Autel Bundles does not include a pathway to Pix4DMapper. Please contact our sales team to purchase Pix4DMapper. Advexure is a Pix4D Authorized Reseller.
Do I need a fast computer for Pix4Dreact?
Pix4Dreact was specifically designed to run on virtually any computer that runs Windows 10. A blazing fast computer is not needed for Pix4Dreact to operate rapidly and effectively.
I bought my EVO II Bundle last month, am I eligible for a free Pix4Dreact?
Yes! If you purchased your EVO II Bundle from Advexure please contact our Support Team. If you purchased your Bundle elsewhere, please contact Autel directly at 844-MY AUTEL (844-692-8835).
