Intel acquires Ascending Technologies

Intel has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the German drone developer and manufacturer Ascending Technologies – subject to customary closing conditions.
Intel plans for the Ascending Technologies team to continue supporting their current customers while also collaborating with Intel’s Perceptual Computing team to develop UAV technology that can help drones fly with more awareness of their environments.

“We’ve already partnered to combine Ascending Technologies’ sense-and-avoid algorithms with Intel RealSense technology’s real-time depth-sensing capability. Together, these technologies can, among other things, improve drone safety – helping them avoid obstacles and collisions,” Intel writes in a blog post.

With Ascending Technologies, Intel gains expertise and technology to accelerate the deployment of Intel RealSense technology into the fast growing drone market segment.
