Autel Robotics, a leading global provider of drone technology, announced today that its EVO Max 4T drone has won a coveted 2023 Red Dot Design Award. The EVO Max 4T was chosen from a strong lineup of applicants to the competition, with the drone being selected as a winner for its incredible capability in a compact design and breadth of industry applications.
Standing Out from Alternatives
The EVO Max 4T brings newly developed technologies and advanced autonomy to users. Autel’s new Autonomy Engine and millimeter-wave radar allow EVO Max 4T to assess complex environments and create real-time 3D flight paths for intelligent obstacle avoidance. Advanced sensors make flight in GPS unavailable areas possible and the latest upgrade to SkyLink 3.0 boasts a 12.4-mile transmission range and auto-hopping across four frequency bands for an optimal signal.
What further sets EVO Max apart is its new payload system, capable of supporting a wide variety of mission requirements, without the need to swap payloads or use a different drone. It integrates a 50MP wide-angle and 48MP zoom camera, with support for 8K 10x optical zoom and 160x digital zoom. The high resolution 640x512 thermal camera is capable of 16x digital zoom and the integrated laser rangefinder provides centimeter level coordinates from up to 0.75 miles away. Paired with a foldable, weather-resistant design, the EVO Max 4T is as portable as it is capable.
