DJI is a company known primarily for their drones with mounted cameras, but it seems that DJI could be considering grounding themselves next. In a recently-discovered patent, it seems that DJI could be looking to launch a ground-based product next in the form of a remote controlled car.
According to the patent, it suggests that this could be a car with wheels that can rotate 360-degrees, making it easy to manipulate and drive around, especially in places with little room. It also mentions a potential camera mount that is separate from the wheels of the car, meaning that if the car travels on a bumpy road, it will reduce the amount of shake to the camera.
Essentially, it would double up as a stabilizer so that the camera mounted to the car will be able to capture footage that isn’t blurry or shaky. It is interesting to see that DJI could be considering ground-based robots given that the company is primarily known for their drones, but it’s not exactly the most outrageous thing we’ve heard of.
That being said, unfortunately due to the fact that this is a patent, there’s no telling if DJI will actually make it a reality. The company has been exploring non-drone related products such as action cameras and camera gimbals, so it wouldn’t be a stretch to think that they could eventually launch such a product, but we’ll have to wait and see.
