Patent for Intelligent Landing Site Detection System


The "Intelligent Landing Site Detection System" developed and patented by Dr. Nils Gageik makes fully autonomous flight possible from takeoff to landing. Systems can now land between buildings through precise situation awareness, autonomous obstacle detection and collision avoidance at the landing site.

Recently, we were notified by the German Patent and Trade Mark Office that the nine-month opposition period has expired and that the patent is now legally valid.

The innovative landing site detection system enables drones to autonomously find a suitable place to land safely

Dr. Nils Gageik filed the Landing Site Detection System as first patent in 2018

The drone detects the space between buildings as a suitable landing site

Sensors detect obstacles in the drone's environment and reliably avoid collisions with them

Emqopter's autonomous Delivery Drone is equipped with innovative sensor technology
