DJI launches new ‘drone in a box’ automated solution

Shenzhen, China — DJI has announced the launch of the DJI Dock 2. Featuring the DJI Matrice 3D/3TD drone, this lightweight “drone in a box” is cost-effective and simple to install and deploy.

Compatible with DJI FlightHub 2, automated aerial missions can be managed and monitored through cloud-based operations. As an end-to-end enterprise solution, DJI Dock 2 can streamline daily operations for surveying, inspections, asset management and security.

Compared to the previous generation, Dock 2 is significantly smaller and lighter while offering superior operation capabilities and cloud-based intelligent functions. For example, using DJI FlightHub 2, high-precision 3D models can be created based on collected flight data. With this information, drones can be programmed to automatically adjust the camera’s angle to capture the same area in subsequent flights. Routine surveying tasks can be automated with features like this, improving worker safety and efficiency.

DJI Dock 2 uses vision sensors to evaluate a site before deploying the drone, ensuring the flight path and destination have good GNSS signals. This significantly expedites the site selection process to 12 minutes or less, down from 5 hours. Once ready, it can quickly complete propeller inspections and get accurate RTH location information using its dual RTK antennas, allowing the drone to take off within a minute.

Both versions of DJI Dock 2 with either the DJI Matrice 3D or DJI Matrice 3TD can be reserved starting March 26. Interested buyers can get pricing from local authorized DJI Enterprise dealers. Learn more:
