Epson Electronics America, Inc.
Epson Electronics America, Inc. will be highlighting the Moverio BT-200 smart glasses for use with drones at the Unmanned Systems Conference, May 5-7 in Atlanta, GA. Throughout the event, Epson will demonstrate how it can provide a hands-free, first-person view (FPV) from the DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ Drone video camera as a transparent display on the Moverio glasses. The transparency allows drone pilots to maintain a line of sight with their aircraft without having to look down at a smartphone or tablet to view the camera feed. With the transparent FPV image, pilots can also better avoid hazards such as trees, poles and buildings as well as more easily guide their crafts for desired camera views. In addition to the FPV image, drone pilots can also view on-screen data such as remaining battery life, satellite locked and recording operations. With a sleek, light design, the Epson Moverio BT-200’s advanced binocular optical system projects see-through overlays of digital content onto the real-world in the center of the smart glasses’ field of view. Powerful applications take advantage of its head-motion tracking, hands-free navigation and front-facing camera.
