Stampede is the best-known distributor of drones for the commercial AV market, and the company is set to show how the market can leverage the technology at InfoComm 2019. Teaming up with DJI TELLO EDU, Stampede will be delivering live demonstrations on how schools could leverage drone technology to teach students a variety of subjects.
“InfoComm has become a premier event for the education channel and we’re taking full advantage of this at this year’s show with an entire section of our 50’X50’ booth devoted to the channel and with a flying cage that demonstrates the unique capabilities of drones in education,” said Kevin Kelly, President and CEO of Stampede.
“We expect a lot of educators will leave the show this year with a greater appreciation for what drones can contribute to their STEM/STEAM programs.”
TELLO EDU is a programmable drone that has been specifically design for educational use. Users can learn programming languages such as Scratch, Python and Swift using the drone. With an upgraded SDK 2.0, TELLO EDU comes with more advanced commands and increased data interfaces. Complete with DJI’s flight control technology, TELLO EDU also supports Electronic Image Stabilization and enables users to write code to command multiple TELLO EDUs to fly in a swarm and develop AI functions.
What’s more, according to Kelly, Stampede is offering the first 50 schools that order 10 DJI TELLO EDU drones between June 12 and July 31, 2019 10 Online Drone Safety Course Trainings through Unmanned Vehicle University featuring DJI. To qualify, schools will watch a demo at InfoComm in Stampede booth #1329 to receive a voucher for the course. They can redeem the voucher when they purchase the 10 DJI TELLO EDUs after the show through their reseller. Each training has a value of $199.00.
