In autonomous flight mode, the Aibot X6 V2 can fly along waypoints automatically. The route is set with Aibotix AiProFlight flight planning software and transmitted wirelessly to the Aibot. With the help of pre-planned routes, the Aibot can perform inspection and mapping flights of any pattern without manual piloting.
Planning a waypoint flight for a solar energy plant inspection:
Open a planning square with the mouse pulled over the area that shall be surveyed with the Aibot X6 V2. The program creates the route shown in red automatically.
This is a final way point plan. The white points indicate the positions at which the data will be captured.

Planning a POI (Point Of Interest) flight:
The white point in the middle of the circle indicates a so called point of interest (POI). This could be a building that shall be inspected. The flight path leads around that POI, to which the camera is directed at all times.
This inspection flight plan around the POI - in this case the Hercules monument in Kassel, Germany - was planned automatically. The yellow fields represent the camera foot prints on the ground.

Aibotix AiProFlight 2 Software
Ability to design waypoint-flights, which will be performed automatically by the Aibot X6 V2 upon instruction. Waypoint planning is done on geo-referenced imagery. Additional features include:
- Automatic generation of raster flights in respect to photogrammetric requirements
- Geo-referencing of captured data
- Payload manager for different sensors including offset information
- Map-caching and offline planning function
- Logfile manager as 'blackbox system'
