Built with enterprise users in mind, DJI's Matrice 210 Professional Quadcopter leverages the Inspire 2 platform but is ruggedized and built to withstand harsh conditions. The body of the drone itself is rated at IP43 for weather and water resistance in the field. Dual battery bays can house two included TB50 or TB55 batteries to power the drone for flights lasting up to 38 minutes.
The advanced electronics found in the Matrice 210 include computer-vision intelligent flight modes using DJI's FlightAutonomy system. With this system objects in front of, below, and above the drone can be detected and avoided automatically. What's more: using the onboard 2-axis stabilized FPV camera, the pilot can navigate the Matrice 210 without being limited to a mounted gimbal camera's field-of-view.
For image capture and analysis, the Matrice 210 is compatible with DJI's separately available Zenmuse gimbal cameras, including the X4S, X5S, and Z30 — with each model offering different FOV options, as well as the XT and XT2, which offer thermal imaging. Where the 210 model differs from the 200 is in its flexible payload and connectivity support for additional sensors, whether they be from third parties or future upgrades from DJI. The 210 model can have two different gimbal cameras mounted underneath the drone for forward and downward views, or one gimbal camera mounted atop the drone for upward views, useful for examining infrastructure from below.
- Spotlight - Lock the camera onto a subject during flight while the aircraft moves freely
- Point of Interest - Circle around an object for a smooth orbit
- Tripod - Fine-tune position and angle for position framing and safe navigation in narrow environments
- ActiveTrack - Follow a person or object while keeping it in frame
In an easy-to-use control center, DJI FlightHub lets users plan flights with multiple drones and keep track of each aircraft's status. An offsite control room can simultaneously monitor live feeds and remotely control gimbal and camera. The software enables managers to plan flights in advance using waypoints and dynamic geofencing.
